The transition from online learning back to in-person classes has proven to be difficult for some students — especially those going into their first semester of college. However, pursuing higher education doesn’t have to be complicated; here are 5 gadgets that can be used to help college students succeed at home or on campus:
1. Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Besides effectively blocking out distracting active sounds, noise-cancelling headphones have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, enhance relaxation, and improve focus and productivity.
However, not all noise-cancelling headphones are alike; college students should opt for headphones that have a decent battery life, offer great sound quality, and are comfortable in or around the ears.
2. Rocketbook Smart Notebook
The Rocketbook Smart Notebook looks and functions like a standard spiral notebook. However, students can use the Rocketbook app to scan notes written on the reusable, eco-friendly pages and convert them into files that can be saved on the cloud.
3. USB Keychains
USB keychains allow students to take their projects on the go, whether they’re at the library or off-campus. Attach these devices to lanyards, keychains, and more to ensure you never lose track of your thumb drive again.
4. Laptop Backpack with Charger
Keep laptops and tablets safe and secure with an anti-theft, water-resistant laptop backpack. Some options you’ll come across will also feature a USB charging port so you can keep your devices charged while on the go.
5. Wireless Mouse and Portable Keyboard
Set up a comfortable studying area no matter where you go with a wireless mouse and foldable keyboard. These devices are compact, so they can easily fit in backpacks or laptop bags. Plus, foldable keyboards can be compatible with tablets and smartphones.
These five gadgets are a perfect starting point for any new college student who wants to get ahead; they easily fit the student’s budget and come in various colors and customizations to add a personalized touch.
