FOREST (iOS, Android) is an app that helps students stay off their phones and focus on their work. Here’s how it works: When you want to concentrate, you plant a seed in Forest. Over the next 30 minutes, this small seed will grow into a large tree; however, if you can’t resist the temptation to watch a YouTube video or play a game on your phone, your lovely little tree will wither away.

RESCUETIME (Mac, PC, Android) is a free software program that tracks how you spend your time on the computer and sends you weekly summaries along with a productivity score. ADHD students are often surprised to find that non-homework browsing eats up a lot of their time.

SELFCONTROL (Mac) is an app that lets you block access to distracting websites, e-mail, and anything else on the Internet. Set a period of time, add the sites to your blacklist, and click “start.” By blacklisting sites that students know will tempt them, they can get assignments done by working, distraction-free, until the time expires.
