Study Skills and Internet Based Tools Workshop

Participant reviews

"I want to thank you for presenting Tech Tools for Your Brain at Howard County Library, Miller Branch on March 10, 2011.



Your demonstrations of quick and easy digital tools to help students with school work was an asset to those who attended. The opportunity for teens to discover their learning style will help them in school and their future."

"Every single resource seems useful in some way. The essay organizer is really helpful to deal with thoughts coming at random times. Also, I never realized how much a timer can make a difference."

"All of the programs have features that everyone in the room is bound to find useful. Programs that will assist in organization are bound to be helpful, as well as time management."
