Professionals’ advice on using My Study Life in practice

Use the app as a conversation starter about school work and how they are currently managing.

Gauge where the young person is currently at with organising their study or if they are currently using other organisational tools as well as their needs.

The complexity of this app might not be suitable for all.

Advice from young people

It would be easier to use from the very beginning as some might find it hard to change their habits.

It would be good to promote the use of this app as a way for young people to better themselves through keeping on track and organised.

The app could be used outside of study to help keep track of other reoccurring activities.
