For Back-to-School Success, Become a Blockhead

A complete range of Datexx TimeCube timers improve student productivity and focus. And grades!

KENILWORTH, NJ (DATE) – With the school year upon us, parents across the country are looking for ways to keep their kids on the path to academic achievement. Experts agree that time management is one of the keys to success. And a new tool from the innovative engineering team at Datexx is making that happen for families and students across the country.

The “Datexx TimeCube is a wonderful tool! It keeps me and the family on track and focused!” said Alicia Torres, mother of two from Albuquerque. “I love this so much we have two of them.”

The TimeCube is set by simply rotating it to the desired time, so there’s no need to fuss around adjusting a knob. It comes in 10 different colors with various timer options appropriate for students at any grade level.

According to Heather Olsen in Milwaukee, “What I really like is that it doesn’t tick or have any other noise going on as the time goes by. My son, who has ADHD, has found it useful just to get started on homework which is a big plus.”

Even children who know how to tell time don’t necessarily know how to measure time. Setting a timer during a block of time when they’re supposed to be completing a task has proven to be a really helpful strategy.

“Who knew that a timer could be fun enough to encourage kids to do their homework,” gushed Carolyn Levine from Houston.

Parents can also keep a clock nearby and give kids a verbal countdown as the minutes tick by so that children can begin getting an internal feel for these time segments.

“It’s useful in limiting video game time,” noted Miami homeschool mom Gina diGiacomo, “And sometimes we use if for a beat-the-clock game…. can you pickup ALL of your stuff in the living room in 5 minutes?”

Today’s families are busier than ever and kids are bombarded with distractions every minute of every day. So developing time management skills has become increasingly important.

Of course, no tool will be beneficial if it ends up getting tossed into a drawer and forgotten. Because the TimeCube is easy to use and attractive, it’s certain not to meet that fate. “I bought these for everyone in the family as I thought they are great example of how good design can make life simpler,” said San Diego mom Denise Bynum.
