Frustrated With Your Teens Cell Phone Habits?
Trying to get our children off of the cell phone or computer long enough to utter a few sentences has been a challenge. The point at which parents have enough is when it interferes with school grades. Researching other parents solutions to this problems revealed this is not just any problem. Teen phone use is an epidemic all across the world! This got us thinking how to use kids lust for phone use toward educational purposes, not just leisure. Big Mage LTD is the company that is bringing StudyLock to the marketplace. We believe that education plays a pivotal roll in the development of children all over the world. In this age of digital distraction, greater emphasis has to be paid to ways of incorporating education into students lives outside the classroom.
A basis for learning has been the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Their mission is to hold education to an elevated standard level for all children in the United States and across the world. As stated on the common Core Website: “The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.” Common Core State Standards questions are provided in partnership with HelpTeaching.com
Welcome to StudyLock™, a cell phone application and software system which utilizes technology and the Internet to enhance teen learning. Our application locks out devices, such as computers, computer tablets, and smartphones until a configurable amount of grade-appropriate questions are answered. StudyLock locks games, Internet, cell phone use, smartphone applications, and texting to other telephone numbers, except for predetermined emergency phone numbers. In order for a child to unlock the device, they must answer Common Core State Standards questions in subjects such as Math, Science, History, Literature, and other scholastic subjects. Once the questions are answered the cell phone or device can be used as normal.
Features include a grading system to track correct answers to identify the student’s strong and weak subjects. This grade is viewable from the Parents Web Portal and can be configured to be emailed automatically. Gold Members will have the added feature of entering their child into learning competitions based on the StudyLock grading system. Children can win prizes based on their performance by subject and overall performance. This feature engages the student using the app through rewards based system.

Words from Parents
I am so grateful to your company for developing this application. My kid is playing on the phone for over 3 hours every day. Now with StudyLock installed, he is not only playing but also learning. Big Thank you.
At first I though this app will make my teen very angry but I was wrong. She enjoyed answering questions and fighting for a better position in the leader-board. Highly recommended!
I’ve been waiting for app like StudyLock for a very long time. My teen is no longer losing countless hours on FaceBook but she is also learning. I can also check on her strong and weak subjects in school. Thank you!
At first I was very skeptical about this app. I was against forcing kids to do something they don’t want to do. Anyway, I decided to install it on my teen’s Samsung anyway and was surprised that my daughter was actually enjoying answering questions and fighting for a better position the prizes
