app

winnow

Integrating 20 learning strategies from educational psychology, WinNow serves to maximise student productivity and ease the management of tasks. Its user-friendly interface offers a simple and accessible setting for self-directed learning, which aims to strike a balance between work and relaxation.

I received 2nd place for my research on the effectiveness of study techniques in the STEM Fellowship’s Scholarly Writing Challenge, which prompted the creation of this application that implements my findings. Drawing from several components of my research, I identified the following 20 features to significantly enhance learning. 

  1. Timer
  2. Spontaneous thought journal
  3. The Feynman Technique
  4. Learning from Mistakes
  5. Setting Resistance
  6. Link Page
  7. The Peak Productivity Period
  8. Memory Palace
  9. Fitness Reminder
  10. To-Do List
  1. Feedback
  2. Spaced Repetition
  3. Incremental Targets
  4. Mnemonics
  5. Flash Cards
  6. Relatedness
  7. Research Project Management
  8. Test Record
  9. Learning Progress
  10. Mindmaps

Using technology, the app aims to redefine the educational landscape by empowering the youth towards constructive growth. Ultimately, I hope to facilitate a passion for learning and the pursuit for excellence through the cultivation of a healthy daily routine… Read More
