HeadMagnet is a study tool created to help with the memorization and study of important facts. HeadMagnet is a free-to-join website that helps students to organize the material they need to study as well as to test them on that material. Set up similarly to a flashcard-like simulation, HeadMagnet gives a student an interactive way to study. HeadMagnet gives broad possibilities for study. An individual can insert their own facts, pictures or videos to study, or get a study guide that someone has already shared on the website. It is also possible for a teacher to make the study guide and share it with the struggling students. HeadMagnet allows students to create numerous amounts of study guides. Once a study guide is saved onto HeadMagnet, it is available for a student to review at any time. HeadMagnet is a very useful tool, not to mention the motivation of the creative study outlet, as opposed to the intimidation of traditional study.
HeadMagnet could find its home in just about any 3rd to 6th grade classroom. The tool could be implemented to help students that struggle with study skills. For the children who feel intimidated and lost in large amounts of information needed for either a test or just important classroom information, HeadMagnet could be used as the perfect support. A student could plug the needed information into HeadMagnet and it will forever be there for them to study and review. The website is less intimidating than a textbook full of inaccessible information. The individual student has the ability to access their study lists at home and at school. It is even a possibility for a teacher to support his/her student by sharing an individualized study guide to aid in productive study habits. HeadMagnet could also be used in the classroom as a collaboration tool. Students can share study guides that they have created with their classmates, creating a supportive classroom environment.
