5 Must-Have Gadgets Every Student Should Have in 2020
September is just around the corner—and for students—that means going back to school. But this year promises many new changes for students. Parents are rightfully worried about their children’s safety, the impact of virtual learning, and more.
Whether students are returning to school or studying from the comfort and safety of their homes, the 2020 school year is bound to be a unique experience for everyone involved.
So, what can you do to make this transition a little easier? We’ve come up with a list of must-have electronic items for students in 2020. Read on to see what gadgets our team believes will increase safety, improve accessibility and connectivity, and provide students the best learning environment.
1. Echo Dot 3rd Gen With Clock
When you’re busy studying from home, it’s useful to have technology that can keep up with you. That’s where the Echo Dot comes in.
This advanced smart speaker uses voice control technology for music streaming, alarms, news alerts, and more. You can even voice control your smart home. With this technology, you can set an alarm, play your study playlist, and turn on the lights all without getting out of your chair. The third generation of the Echo Dot also features an LED display that will show you the time, temperature, and any timers you have set.
This smart speaker offers convenience and efficiency, making it ideal for busy students.
2. Lexon Oslo Energy Wireless Charger-Speaker
One of the best things about working from the comfort of your own home is that you are able to play your own music. With the Lexon Oslo Energy Wireless Charger-Speaker, you’ll be able to play your music from wherever you happen to be working—even if you decide to spend an afternoon studying in the backyard!
Plus, this two-in-one device also acts as a wireless charger for your other electronic devices. Simply place your smartphone directly on top of the device, and within three hours, you’ll be fully charged. This stylish, minimalistic speaker-charger is ideal for students who get bored of working in one place and want to take their makeshift office everywhere they go.
3. Amazon Fire Stick 4K
Planning on working or studying from home this year? You’ll probably need a way to enjoy your time off, especially if you’re unable to go out as often due to COVID-19. Why not look into upgrading your entertainment system with the incredible Amazon Fire Stick 4K?
But the Amazon Fire Stick can also help with your schooling. This device plugs straight into your TV, meaning you can put that Zoom meeting on the big screen, or follow along with your favourite lectures. The Fire Stick turns any TV with a USB slot into a functional smart TV.
This state-of-the-art Firestick also comes with inbuilt Alexa voice technology, so that you don’t have to worry about typing a single thing into the search bar. Simply tell the TV what you want to watch, and you’ll be up and running.
This Fire Stick also provides access to live news and sports, Amazon Music, Spotify, and Pandora, so you can play your favourite playlists and podcasts throughout the day.
4. AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Headphone
Whether you’re looking for headphones for your video conference calls or just for listening to your study playlist, they’re an excellent piece of technology to have when you’re working from home.
AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones deliver amazing quality using unique bone induction technology. This technology also helps you to retain situational awareness for when you’re out and about. If you enjoy studying outside or at local cafes, these headphones will help you to zone out background noise, while keeping you safe.
5. Netgear Nighthawk WiFi 6
Studying from home means that you’ll probably need to be connecting with teachers and classmates every day via the internet. Unfortunately, most homes tend to have pretty patchy WiFi networks. If you find that your internet strength simply isn’t good enough in certain areas of your home, why not invest in the Netgear Nighthawk WiFi System and extender?
This device promises to remove every single dead zone within a 3000 square foot area. It also offers much faster internet speeds, so you and your other family members can all work from various devices at once without experiencing any connectivity issues. You won’t even need to switch internet providers as the Nighthawk works as a router replacement.
