Five Gadgets for Back to School


Schools supplies are getting more and more sophisticated as the years go by

Going back to school can mean shopping for a variety of new clothes and school supplies such as pencils, notebooks and textbooks. It can also mean looking for interesting gadgets that are part of the educational experience and can aid in the challenges of school. Here are five gadgets to consider when doing some of your back-to-school shopping.
Backup power
It can be inconvenient when a smart phone or personal music device runs out of power in the middle of school. When a power plug isn’t readily available or convenient, a student can turn to an external battery for help. These portable devices can easily be carried in a purse, pocket or backpack, and can be purchased for less than $20. One example is the Anker Astro Mini, and more info on this accessory can be found at http://www.ianker.com/External-Batteries/category-c1-s1.
Sun-driven keyboard
Solar technology has been used in smaller calculators for years, but only recently has it become more common in computer keyboards. Today, students can purchase a full computer keyboard from Logitech that is powered by sunlight or lamplight. This device can be used both outdoors and indoors. Prices start at less than $55, and additional data on this environmentally friendly keyboard can be found at http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Solar-Keyboard-iPhone/dp/B007VL8Y2C.
A pen that is mightier
Taking notes continues to be part of the education process on many levels, but today that process has become much more sophisticated in terms of processing power. That is because there are smartpens like the Sky pen. This device can record many hours of audio and automatically transmit written notes via Wi-Fi into an app like Evernote. The 8GB model retails for $179.95, and more information on this powerful pen can be found at http://store.livescribe.com/smartpen/8gb-skytm-wifi-propack.html.
Digging in the backpack
The school backpack can get filled with all sorts of supplies, and sometimes the right object is hard to find. Emptying the backpack may not always be practical, which is why there is now an LED backpack that has low-emission lights sewn into the interior. This backpack is designed to hold a laptop or tablet along with school books, and the lights automatically turn off after 25 seconds. The backpack retails for $69.99, and more info is available at http://www.sharperimage.com/si/view/product/LED-Backpack/201789?question=backpack.
The color calculator
Despite the advancements in computers and tablets, there are still key mathematical functions that are best served by a calculator. Today, the calculator has been enhanced with color, better graphics and pictures. One example is the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition Graphing Calculator, which can be found for less than $100. More information on this colorful educational tool can be found at http://education.ti.com/en/us/products/calculators/graphing-calculators/ti-84-plus-c-silver-edition/tabs/overview.
Gadgets are part of everyday life, and that includes the school setting. These particular items can help with learning, and in many cases make the school day a little more interesting.
