Have you ever found yourself sitting down after school promptly at 4 PM to start homework, opening up Facebook for what seemed like five minutes, but was actually two hours? Avoiding procrastination can sometimes be a challenge, especially with technology acting as a major distraction.
Though computers, cell phones and televisions can sometimes seem to be more of a curse than a blessing, technology need not be the enemy. There are many ways to limit these distractions and use your electronic devices to efficiently complete your schoolwork.
This school year, make an effort to use technology to help, not hurt, yourself academically. Electronics are a double edged sword—be mindful of their ability to both distract you and aid you. Besides, the sooner you finish your homework, the sooner you can return to Facebook.
