Ever heard about someone who doesn’t spend too much time studying, still scores good marks?
So, what they do differently than others?
And, the only answer to this question would be – time management.
Time Management is very important for students.
And, having the right set of productivity tools can help you manage your time well and boost your performance.
Many students don’t use any kind of apps or tools to manage their studies but once you understand the proper use of productivity tools, you will never go back.
Most of the powerful productivity tools that I’m talking about are completely free but we do not realize what they could do for your our betterment.
This article contains a list of a few such tools which can skyrocket your studies and make things easier for you.
Best Productivity Tools for Students to Save Time and Boost Performance
If I include everything, the list could be a never-ending one but I have done the hard work for you and mentioned only the tools which I have used personally.
Like active recall strategies, some of these tools can also help you manage your personal as well as professional life with ease.
Here goes the infographic containing the list of tools…
All the tools mentioned in the above infographic are as follows:
1. Google Drive
I can’t explain how important can Google Drive be for you!
I have written the article that you’re currently reading by using Google Docs. When you use the tool, it becomes much easier to research things while writing.
If you have a Gmail account then you have the Google Drive with 15 GB cloud storage and unlimited Google Docs storage for free.
You can save all the things that you require frequently on Google Drive and access them from anywhere, anytime and on any device.
2. Microsoft OneNote
When it comes to note-taking, OneNote is the king.
It’s a free tool offered by Microsoft for all the platforms like Windows, Mac, iOs and Android.
The notes you take are saved on the Onedrive which offers 5GB storage for free and which is enough for a university student.
OneNote also has a feature to take hand-written notes on touch devices like tablets and smartphones and is best supported by the Microsoft Surface devices.
3. Brave Browser
Many websites have annoying ads and they disturb while researching for anything. And, there comes the Brave browser which has features like ad blocking, 3rd party cookies blocking, etc. which speeds up your browsing and, hence the research.
The Brave browser feels exactly like Google Chrome (with some extra features) while using because it is based on the Chromium browser.
Trello is a great tool for managing tasks and projects. You need to create visual boards for all your tasks which can also be shared with your friends.
It also has a reminder feature which is very useful for the students. Trello can manage everything from your studies to your day-to-day lives with its great features. You won’t have to remember everything that you go through.
Even bloggers and digital marketers use this tool to manage their day.
5. Google Keep
Another gem by Google offered for completely free.
You can save any information like text notes, images, voice notes, checkboxes, reminders, etc. with the help of this amazing tool.
And, Google has made this tool available for all the OS and all the platforms including the web version.
I use this app in order to bookmark links and create checkboxes for my blogging topics. All the information are saved in the card format which can be organized by using the colours and tags.
Todoist is another app which specializes in creating to-do lists for your day-to-day works.
It has a great smartphone application which will never let you miss any important class or presentation ever.
Just set the time and date for the task and it will remind you at the exact time without failing.
You, as a student, can manage your personal tasks and tasks related to studies by using this application.
7. Microsoft Kaizala
Kaizala by Microsoft is a simple and secure instant messaging app. But what makes it special?
Well, this app can help you connect with the fellow students as well as the teachers. You can discuss anything with your friends and provide feedback to your teacher right away.
Many schools and colleges are using this application worldwide in order to improve teacher-student communication and improve the productivity of the students.
Well, this was the list of 7+ Productivity Tools for Students which can supercharge your study flow.
Please note that I have only listed the apps which I have used personally.
