tara commented on Stik: Mobile app for independent learning

Hi Naman Mandhan 
Thank you so much for your comment. I'm excited to be a part of the Challenge!I think once school is back in session, the app still provides structure for out-of-class learning. While it can be useful for any students in middle-high and university levels, university students can especially benefit from additional support as they transition to the university setting (i.e., less structured, larger student to teach ratio, etc.) In the previous version of the app, we found that students loved seeing how much time they were actually studying by using the timer to track their breaks. It seemed that provided encouragement towards their goals, and insight into how many breaks/distractions were occurring during the study session. We also blocked any other apps while the study timer was running, which meant that students were more focused and less tempted to check notifications while they were learning.The learning activities are curated around the content type more broadly (i.e., practice questions, textbook reading, online video, etc). The activities are focused on how to engage students into active learning activities that will help strengthen their connection to the information to be learned.

Looking forward to any further questions or feedback you might have!
Thanks again :)
