Be Focused is an app where students can be mindful of screen time while setting timers for non-screen tasks. Students can set a custom time for tasks, short breaks, and long breaks. A graphing feature allows students to see their productivity over a period of time and make changes to their behavior based on the data the graph shows.

Be Focused helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Self Awareness Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings. 

Be Focused requires students to work towards self-awareness. Students might not be aware how much “lost time” they spend on their phones and Be Focused encourages them to focus on non-screen tasks. The graphing feature also allows students to see unproductive days and reflect on why those days might have been unproductive and what they might need to do to improve their focus. 

Focus Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks. 

Be Focused is an app that requires students to choose a task and then counts down a timer until they can take a short break. This timer cycle repeats until a long break can be taken. Students can build their focus skills by limiting their screen time while the app is counting down and focusing on the task at hand. The flexibility of the timer allows students to start with a shorter amount of time and work their way up to longer tasks.
