Something for tweens and teens!

The beginning of a new term means that people will be hitting the shops to find all of the equipment that they need for the coming months. It is essential to be well equipped for the lessons that are going to take place, and a diary or planner is considered to be one of the most critical elements of your equipment collection. We’re going to be exploring this particular facet of the student toolkit, and seeing what makes it so useful.

Here are some great free printable planner stickers from The Pinning Mama!

Why Get A Planner?

One of the first questions that you’ll need to ask yourself is ‘why do I need a planner’? There are many different reasons why this is the case because a diary is such a good choice.  

You have one location in which you can record all of the various notes, lesson plans and essential details. This usefulness means that some schools hand out planners as standard, or they instead take the time to make sure that they have the best possible alternative provided.

Planner or Diary?

Of course, an age-old question is which variant you choose to get – a planner or a diary. We believe that there’s no answer which is right, as people should select whatever works for them. According to Dr Roy Ale, Marketing Executive for Oxford Summer School says that ‘the variant you choose isn’t as important as actually having something in your possessions. It’s more about having the best possible kind of tools to hand to get the most from your education’.

Customising Your Planner

Your planner doesn’t have to be drab and boring, as there is a level of customisation available on every kind of new device. People can change and alter their planner to suit themselves, and this can make all the difference.

People are more likely to engage with and use a planner if it looks like something they’ve made themselves. It is all about appealing to what people want from their education – in some cases that’s just to be an individual. When we go to school, we’re often made to wear a uniform, and act a certain way. It is designed to make sure that the reasons to discriminate are reduced, but a planner which has been customised isn’t necessarily a bad thing – it shows creativity and free spirit.

Overall, a planner is considered to be the best possible choice for someone to have in their school supplies. Whether you opt for that or the diary, the fact remains that you’re making a good choice. It’s designed to be one of the best possible ways for someone to keep track of all the information which they’ll come into contact with during the school period, while at the same time preventing them from getting confused. There’s no doubt that the diary is a wise investment, but it takes a lot to get it right, so you should probably get to hunting!
