Stop recommending tools that students won’t use
It must be frustrating to give great advice about time and task management, only to see it go to waste. We believe it’s because the tools you recommend are hard to use and outdated.
The classic tool that every learning center recommends but students never use. Not flexible and takes too much effort to manage weekly.
Google and Outlook calendars were built for tracking meetings. Not for planning what task to work on, when, and for how long.
Spreadsheets are an ad-hoc solution that is hard to implement and keep updated. Student shouldn’t have to struggle to manage their time.
Academic coaches give students great advice
Academic coaches and learning center professionals tell students how to manage their time and tasks well, but it’s not always easy to implement their advice.
But students don’t have a good tool to implement said advice
Can you imagine creating a detailed weekly schedule on a paper planner every week? Or creating a new event for every task you need to do in your Google Calendar? Or tracking your weekly schedule and to-do’s on a spreadsheet and never receiving notifications?
Students end up feeling lost and overwhelmed
If implementing your advice isn’t fast, easy, and flexible, most students won’t do it. Students live in a digital age. Meet them where they are and offer them a solution that will work for them.
Give your students a tool that makes it easy to implement your advice
