There's an App for That: The Impact of Reminder Apps on Student Learning and Anxiety
Simmons, Lakisha; Crook, Amy; Cannonier, Colin; Simmons, Chris
Journal of Education for Business, v93 n5 p185-195 2018
Today's students experience increased anxiety around school and have difficulty keeping track of course assignments. The authors conceptually develop and empirically test a model of the impact of a homework reminder mobile application (app) on executive function skills and learning outcomes with undergraduate business students. The findings suggest that perceived usefulness of Homework Suite Planner app positively predicted students' executive functioning by increasing their organization and time management. Increases in executive functioning due to the Homework Suite app led to more completed assignments, lower anxiety about forgetting homework assignments, and greater overall learning satisfaction with the course. Future research and implications for higher education instructors are discussed.
