Boredom while doing homework is a common problem faced by young school students. This can affect their learning progress and achievements. On the other hand, toddlers and young children are becoming more and more experience with technology. This paper aims towards taking advantage of kids' vast experience with technology to better achieve learning outcomes; thereby, developing a smart desk that can smartly check for progress, entertain student while studying, and provide comfort to young users and their parents for daily learning activities. The methodology followed to develop this smart desk is the waterfall SDLC, where a system is developed, analyzed, designed and initially implemented. More precisely, requirements were gathered, modeled, and analyzed, the interfaces and databases were designed, coding and testing took place subsequently. The desk's features include following up with students' homework, measuring students' learning progress based on the scheduled tasks, cheering students when achieving a milestone, alerting for time breaks and more. The smart desk is also a friendly to-use system for juniors. Further, schools and academic institutions can embrace the new technology, thus benefitting from the gains of having a smart desk. The study concluded with implications and future development directions.
