5 Ways Students Can Use Notion for Better Notes + Dashboard Template

What is Notion & what can you use it for?

Notion is essentially ‘digital LEGO’ where you are given a bunch of digital ‘building blocks’ to build your dream digital dashboards and tools. Basically, instead of being locked-into how a piece of software works, you can build Notion custom to how your brain works/your personal requirements. Even better, instead of splitting your digital life over 20+ apps, you can build yourself one super-app in Notion.

Is Notion good for students?

Notion has become a hit with university/college students to manage their course loads. If you search TikTok for ‘#notionapp’ or explore the #studytwt and #notiontwt hashtags on Twitter, you’ll see it filled with student dashboards. My Simple Lectures & Class Notes and Aesthetic Student Planner templates consistently be some of my most popular templates.
