Starting the 2021-2022 school year can be harder than expected, especially since we haven’t experienced “normal school” in a year and a half. However, there are many resources that can help make your school year easier to manage.
Here are 10 of the most beneficial apps you should download to help make this school year less overwhelming and more organized:
This is a great online platform which can help organize your school assignments, goals, and more. There are many different templates and styles you can choose from depending on your organization preferences. I love using Notion to keep up with my school and personal tasks.
Here is an example of how I use Notion to organize my school assignments:
Link to Google Calendar in App Store
Google Calendar is an amazing way to keep up with your important reminders and plans. You can separate your tasks into different categories and sync it to all your devices through your email. I love to use Google Calendar to remind myself of personal events and major school projects/tests I have.
Link to GoodNotes in App Store
GoodNotes is a convenient and helpful way to take notes for classes. Additionally, you can import different assignments into GoodNotes if you want to annotate and highlight your work. I loved using GoodNotes for different readings I had to do for school because I could take notes and mark up the text.
Link to Khan Academy in App Store
A definite must-have app! Khan Academy is one of the best apps to use for extra help with school courses. It is filled with videos and practice problems that thoroughly describe different content. This is also an amazing resource if you are taking any AP courses. I always go to Khan Academy when a lesson in school confuses me or if I need extra practice with a specific topic.
DuoLingo is the perfect app for students taking a foreign language. It is a great way to review and add on to your understanding of the foreign language you are learning. This app has different ways to work on your language skills through listening, vocabulary, grammar, etc. exercises. DuoLingo has helped me improve as a French student and is an excellent app to use during the school year.
Link to Photomath in App Store
Photomath is a valuable app that can help with your math work. While it should not be used to complete all your math problems in a cheating manner, it is a good resource to use when you are stuck or confused on how to approach a math question. It explains the steps to take when solving a problem, and it is simple to use. All you have to do is scan your question with your phone camera, and it will show you how to solve your question.
Quizlet is a great study tool to use for school. There are many different ways to study for your test or quiz on this app, including flashcards, multiple choice tests, and learning games. Quizlet is particularly helpful when you need to memorize and learn terms and definitions. The interactive activities help make sure I thoroughly understand the material, and I use it consistently throughout the year.
