Practically raised with a phone in our hands, Gen Z is the technology generation. Give us a new phone, tablet or fitness device and we will have figured out how to work every part of it within an hour or so. We adopt new technology quickly, and for various reasons. Yet, we don’t download or buy something without a purpose and the apps we use on our tablet or phone are no different.
With finals week rapidly approaching (although these apps can help you in school all year), we’ve rounded out 5 amazing apps to allow you to conquer all your exams and final projects that stand in between you and summer break!
All apps listed below are free (or at least offer free versions) and are available on both the app and google play stores!
For reviewing and studying, Quizlet wins. You can create flashcards, study from those made by another student or race against the clock in matching games. Even better? You can take practice quizzes from the flashcard sets you create!
Quizlet offers you a multitude of ways to review before a quiz or test, which gives you ample opportunity to identify problem areas you may have. Once these problem areas are distinguished, you can review it over and over until you understand it! If that doesn’t work, pick you your phone and receive help from tútit, quick and painlessly!
Think of the MyHomework App as a digital calendar to stay organized in school. You can record upcoming assignment, quiz, and test dates. Plus, you can set reminders for all other important due dates! While using the app, don’t forget to utilize the checklist feature to make sure you never miss any part of a paper, project or section of a chapter to review before a test. Once you have finished that task, check it off and move on to the next!
Evernote is great for when you have multiple assignments and tests coming up and need a place to keep all of your study materials separated and organized! For instance, say you have a research paper on the Civil War for your history final. Any personal notes (in various forms including text, audio, video, and PDF’s) can be uploaded onto Evernote. You may also upload any outside sources including new articles and research papers. Further, you are able to clip and highlight these articles to emphasize the importance of a section of the source.
4) Sleep Cycle
With finals approaching, the idea of late-night study sessions becomes all the more familiar sounding while the idea of a night of good night sleep, becomes less so. Yet, we can’t perform our best if we are not well-rested enough, which is where Sleep Cycle comes into play. The app monitors your sleeping patterns and promises to wake you up only during your light sleep stage. This promotes the feeling of being well-rested, even if you slept a few hours less than normal!
How can we move past frustrating problems and concepts quickly and painlessly? Easy, tútit! Yes, we are biased, but how can we not be? With tútit, you can get help in seconds in over 150 subjects. We focus on helping you solve your biggest obstacles in the most efficient ways through one-on-one tutoring over the phone. If it’s math, your tutor can utilize the blackboard capability or the microphone to walk you through each step of the problem. Whenever you get it, you are done.
Especially during finals season, tútit is a great tool to receive help in school instantly. Once the problem is solved, you can then move onto to any other assignments or studying you may have!
Now, who said technology and education didn’t go together?…
