One of the ten ways your smartphone can help you learn is that you can stay connected to your assignments.

2. Taking Notes

Carrying your laptop everywhere might not always be possible, so your smartphone can easily help you learn. There are many note-taking apps for mobile that can help you note the essential ideas of your courses and the resources your teacher recommends. At the same time, these apps allow you to store your notes safely and access them anytime, including from your laptop or tablet, without needing to transfer them. 

3. Recording Classes 

In some moments, you might feel that you should note everything your teacher says. So, recording the class would be much easier than taking notes. But today, you can easily do this with your smartphone, and this is another way it helps you learn. This way, you make sure you do not miss any details and you can always return to the recording to listen to it. 

4. Keep in Contact With Your Teacher 

One of the greatest benefits of having a smartphone is that you can communicate with anyone in real-time. So, whenever you have any questions or you need clarifications for your assignments, you can contact them by sending an email or a message from your smartphone. This allows you to get your answers faster and you do not have to wait until you get access to your laptop, especially if you are on the road. 

5. Conduct Research 

As a student, you are always on the go. You juggle between classes, you have events and parties you want to attend, and you commute all the time. You can use this time wisely and start your research for your papers. Smartphones give you access to anything, including contacting your librarian for more information regarding your research. 

6. Reading Books 

Speaking of research and reading studies for your papers, you can also read books on your smartphone. There are lots of apps that give you instant access to thousands of books, and with one click you can have them on your smartphone. You can read books for college and academic progress, but also just for leisure. Anyway, reading books just boosts your learning progress. 

7. Video Presentations 

Sometimes, you may have online classes where you need to hold presentations. Or, your assignment might be to just send a video recording of you presenting your project. Smartphones have performant cameras and they can easily replace a professional one or even your laptop. So, you can hold video presentations online, but also record and send them to your professors. 

8. Instant Access to Your Calendar 

Another way your smartphone helps you learn is that it gives instant access to your calendar. This helps you keep track of all your classes and assignments too, which nurtures the learning process. You get notifications and reminders on your phone so that you do not forget about your tasks, which is awesome. This prevents you from falling behind your deadlines.

9. Listening to Podcasts 

Technology has created many learning opportunities for anyone and now you have access to many multimedia resources that help you expand your knowledge. While you are on the go, you can either read a book or listen to a podcast, as smartphones just give you the possibility of doing this anytime. 

10. Setting Timers 

When you immerse yourself in an intense learning session, you might forget about time. If you have a specific learning style, such as the Pomodoro technique, you need to stick by it. And for this, you need a timer. Your smartphone has many features that can help you learn, including this one. 


Technology has advanced tremendously and it created many learning opportunities for everyone. Smartphones are nowadays so performant that they can easily replace laptops, tablets, and even cameras. So, your smartphone can help you learn as it comes with all the features you need to expand your knowledge and keep track and complete your academic assignments.
