Publishing and education company Pearson has teamed up with Foursquare to launch a new app to help students find more productive places to study.

Launched today (27 March) the ‘Inspired Locations of Learning’ app utilises data from Foursquare along with student tips to list the best places to study around universities and cities.

The app also allows university students and staff to share their favourite places for study. So far, Pearson has listed over 200 spots at universities in the US, UK, India and Indonesia.

Tom Glover of Pearson said: “The current list shows that better places to study can be found in the least likely places, from parks, cafes or even castles. The challenge lies in finding these hidden gems, wherever they may be in the world and we’re hoping that the global learning community will enjoy helping contribute to this list of landmarks by adding their own favourites.”

As well as finding better places to study, the first 1000 students who sign up to the free app will have a school textbook donated in their name to a library in Africa through a partnership with Book Aid International.
