Back-to-School Tech Essentials

Back-to-School Tech Essentials

September 07, 2021

Some schools are back in person this year – others are still rocking virtual learning. No matter how you (or your kids) are meeting, any type of education these days calls for a little back-to-school tech. Some school gadgets are critical, and others just make the year way more enjoyable. We’ve got a mix of both in our list of must-have school products to help you survive the year!


Laptop

This is a given, right? You probably already have one if you’re in college, or it’s at the top of your list. If you’ve got kids who are gearing up for another year of virtual learning, you know how much easier life is when the kids have their own laptops to attend class and do school work.


Portable Laptop Battery/Power Bank

Laptops may be a no-brainer, but maybe you’ve never thought about getting a portable backup battery. It’s worth it! If you take notes on your laptop, you can go from class to class without being the person who always hogs the outlet. If it’s virtual learning for you (or the kids), you can get comfortable and move around the house without being attached to the wall for half of your classes. Most computer brands make their own, or you can find a universal portable charger that’s compatible with a variety of brands.


Bluetooth Headphones

If you’re doing any type of virtual learning, Bluetooth headphones are a must-have back-to-school tech. Use Bluetooth headphones just once, and it’s tough to ever want to go back to the inconvenience of wires, especially if you need them for virtual classes for hours each week. AirPods seem to be everyone’s go-to, but the Amazon Echo Buds are great, too.


Apple Watch

Smart watches (like Apple Watch) probably aren’t essential for your middle and high schoolers, but we think they’re one of the best devices for college students. They’ll find many ways to use them, from checking a quick text in class to doing a guided meditation to destress or just making sure they’re actually on time for that 8:00 am class.


Ember Travel Mug² & Ember Car Charger

College students and parents have two things in common: 1. They run on coffee. 2. They have very little time to actually enjoy that coffee. The Ember Travel Mug² can fix that. With long-lasting, precise temperature control, your drink stays at the temperature you choose for up to three hours or indefinitely when you put it on the charging coaster.

So whether you’re sipping your way through morning classes, waiting in the kids’ drop-off line (Ember Car Charger will be your favorite passenger), or pulling an all-night study marathon, you’ll have as long as you want to savor that brew and stay sharp and focused.


Whether you’re on the road or studying at home, keep the distractions at bay throughout the school day with Ember Travel Mug² and Ember Mug².
