I am always on my children to get up and move around while they are studying.I have also been known to use an app that reminds me to take a break by shutting down my computer for five minutes.
Here are 5 apps your students might find helpful. The only two apps ]that you get on the app store are Sworkit: There is a lite version, but the Pro version is only $2.29. It provides you wilt a variety of work out from yoga, to cardio when you don’t have time to go to the gym. And Vocabology: Also $2.29. Helps build vocabulary (it actually looks like a lot of fun…)
The only one that doesn’t work on the iPad is the open source, SelfControl, which you can program to block certain sites or mail serves for a certain period of time while you try to concentrate!
Check out the article though- it gives a way better summary than I just did.
It’s not easy for students to stay on task these days. From Facebook to Instagram & Twitter to instant messaging to pop up, there are so many distractions.
