Technology in the classroom can be a distraction, but sometimes there are some great pieces of tech that can make learning easier. With school only a month away, here are some of the best gadgets to help students in the new academic year.
Clocky Rolling Alarm Clock
Available on Amazon for $39.99, this alarm clock is great for students who love to sleep in. If missing the bus is a recurring problem, you might want to invest in this durable alarm clock, which not only makes noise, but runs away on wheels. By rolling around the room while its alarm goes off, this clock makes hitting the snooze and going back to sleep impossible.
Livescribe Smart Pen
These smartpens connect to phones, tablets, and even Echo Dots, syncing your notes to any of your devices, in real-time. They also record audio, allowing students to take notes without missing any important things being said during lectures and class time. Starting at $99 on the Livescribe website.
Cross Gear Backpack
Available on Amazon for $55.90, the big appeal for this backpack is that it has a USB port to charge your smartphone and tablet. It also has a protective laptop sleeve, a combination lock to protect your belongings, and is waterproof.
This tiny device attaches onto keys, wallets, and more to ensure you never misplace anything for long. By connecting to the Tile app on your smartphone, the Tile device helps track your belongings, no matter where you misplace them.
