3. Set yourself homework reminders.

This is really handy because it’s easy to forget to check a homework diary. With a digital school planner, the ability to set yourself homework reminders means that you’ll never forget about a piece of homework again (yes this does means you’ll actually have to do said homework).


4. Keep everything in one place – saves on storage!

A digital school planner means that you have loads of storage space without taking up any physical space in your school bag. You can even use it as a personal calendar to make things even easier.


5. Catch up on schoolwork easily.
