9 Great Search Tools Extensions for Students

Looking for Something to Do This Summer?

Found a great new app that I thought would come in real handy especially for those of you out there that need help with basic math facts. In my opinion, the best part of playing this game is it will decrease the amount of time it takes to do basic math facts which in turn will make your math homework take less time.  That’s a win-win in my book.

This app can only be downloaded onto a phone but the good news is it is free!  Check it out by clicking here!

 

Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?

Want to be rich?  It turns out that I.Q. is not necessarily a correct predictor on how rich a person will be when they grow up.  So what is? Personality!  In other words, according to this study, if a person want to be rich when he/she grows up then he/she has to be willing to work hard.

Looking for a Job?

Wondering why you are working so hard to go to college?  Asking yourself what kind of job you will have as a grown-up?  Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics by clicking here.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics is a Federal Agency that studies jobs.  This website lists 580 different jobs.  This site can and will answer what jobs will be most/least popular, how much a job pays, and how much education you will need to get a particular job.

This website is the best resource I have seen to help a person decide what to do when they grow-up.

Why start looking now?  Know what you want to do will help motivate you to get the best grades possible so that you can go to the best college for you.

Teens and Technology

A new study suggests that parents are not aware of what student’s do while on-line.  The study goes on to say that only 13% of teens think their parents know what they do on-line.  These are scary numbers.  Parents need to be aware of what students are doing on-line for their own safety.  I don’t believe students completely understand the risks that might be involved using the web.  Parents  and students need to have serious conversations about using the internet safely.  Interested in reading the entire article?  Click here!
