7 Websites And Apps To Help Students Avoid Distractions

Student life is not easy as there are lots of distractions around in the form of Twitter, SnapChat and CandyCrush. But the online world not only distracts students from studying but also helps them in gaining additional knowledge. There are some apps which help students study and also stay on track. Here are seven such websites and apps for students which they can use while studying:

1. Wakerupper

It's not an app but a phone-call which can wake you up on your exam day or if you are setting up a reminder. You can enable the snooze button to make sure you get up early on the day of your exam and you can also put a reminder on what has to be done in the immediate future.

2. Lighthead

Students, these days, mostly prefer online available study material, rather than purchasing them. They don't even take the print-outs to save trees and read the material on computers. But while reading if the keys or the mouse are not touched for a long time, then the laptop falls asleep. With this app your laptop will never feel sleepy while you are busy studying. It's for Mac users only

3. Self-Control

When you are studying, you can avoid distracting websites with the help of this app. This app, exclusively for Mac users, blocks some websites and apps like Twitter, Facebook and some others which distract students while studying. It increases students' productivity too.

4. ColdTurkey

This is a Windows app which blocks social media and games so that no distraction takes place during studying. This app has also introduced a new feature which blocks certain groups of websites too.

5. Positive Reinforecement

With this app, you can type a paper or an essay and once you complete every one hundred words, you are reinforced positively. Positive reinforcement, in this case, signifies pictures of kitten, bunny and puppy. Well yes, nobody can actually hate such cute pictures.

6. Negative Reinforcement

It acts in the opposite way to the previous one. It sets the time-limit by which you are supposed to complete your writing. If you are not able to reach the given word-limit within the time-frame, then you are gifted with a scary image, which you will obviously want to avoid.

7. Hemingway Editor

It does all the cleaning job for you. It highlights those parts which are supposed to be changed and help you make the necessary modifications. It doesn't highlight grammar errors but it notifies you about long sentences which need to be split up and which words have been wrongly placed.

 Having a good profile on LinkedIn is a very good chance and opportunity to attract various jobs. In this highly competitive world, everyone is quite conscious about professional profile, especially the one displayed online. Here are a few points to get yourself known and wanted on this site.

1. Professional headline 

The professional headline is the immediate next thing that people may observe after your name and your photograph. So, don’t be too obvious or state your need/job directly. Be more dedicated and state your goal, where you want to head next.

2. Photos 

This is the first thing, along with name which is observed keenly. It better be simple and decent with true expressions radiating genuine feelings.

3. Summary 

Summary is the best column to type in all your interests and achievements. You can also be a little personal and describe the things you’re good in and the reason behind it. Usually people make CVs and Resumes which does not any chance to mention the above. To supplement, add all your awards you’ve won and the projects you have worked on or currently working on.

4. Description of jobs and positions 

You got to describe very well stating all the facts. The kind of job you are in need of and the position you wish to stand upon. Use tool like that will create a word cloud and make the term appear the most. The choice of the words should be chosen very wisely and effectively. Sometimes people are usually missed in the searches because they may be unemployed or are not sure of what to enter in this particular field. You can always type “seeking a new opportunity” or “making a career change”, so that you won’t be missed out by any way.

5. Skills 

This is a factor which helps you build your image as you want yourself to be known as. Mention all the skills necessary for you to get a particular job and keep the list updated. The list can start from basic skills like management and training to great and difficult ones like master in computer languages and so on.

6. Connections 

Connections can lead you to various places and make wonders. You should always be rich in case of making connections with the right people. Also don’t forget to connect with your past and present contacts. The recruiters should feel that you are less known or afraid to get connected. Make LinkedIn search you your contacts to save time and energy.

7. Recommendations 

Reciprocating to someone’s statement, immediately makes you gain the attention of that person. Giving recommendations is also a very important part in making a good profile. Give your true opinion and advice. Be truly genuine and interested in giving up your advice and the person will get impressed in no time.

8. Groups 

Same like the old English proverb, you are known by the company or group you keep or live in. Join the groups reflecting the people searching for same kind of job and be active. Along with writing comments and putting forth your point of view, also make people feel your personal side. This will make them eager to meet you and hire you. Make a personality of yours reflecting ideas and various different concepts, which will make you more susceptible for the required job.
