It seems like summer just started, but back to school season is in full swing!Â When I attended school my school supply list mostly consisted of crayons and notebooks, but now it seems like every year there are more and more electronics needed for school.Â Here are some electronics on my Must Have List.
This year I have one child in Algebra I and one in Algebra II.Â So I think this is going to be a necessity for us this year.Â I want to make sure that my children know how to do the graphs by hand before I let them use the graphing calculator though.
A flash drive is a must for taking documents and presentations back and forth between school and home.
This is a great device, perfect for recording lectures to playback and listen to later.Â My 19 year old used one at college last year, and found that it was useful for recording review classes before a test.Â She also had one professor who didnâ€™t like to repeat things, even when you asked him to, so she started recording his lectures so she could go back when she needed to.
I am so tired of being the one who has to get my kids up in the morning!Â They need to get up on their own.
My kids are trying to convince me that an iPad is a must-have, but I donâ€™t think so.Â But right now AT&T is sponsoring a great sweepstakes, the Whatâ€™s Cool for School Sweepstakes.Â Each week between now and September 16th AT&T is giving away a must have back to school device to 5 winners, and you can enter here.Â Who knows, maybe they will give away an iPad and I can win one and make my kids happy!
This week the prize is an HTC One X with an included accessory kit.Â Iâ€™d love a smart phone, so I entered to win.Â Other weeks the prizes win include tablets, digital picture frames and much more.Â AT&T is also featuring a new deal on one of their hottest products each week, so if you need new electronics for school check out their deals, and enter to win while you are there.
