A Smart Notebook


A lot of students take notes on their laptops these days, but there’s something about using your hands to write that helps you retain information. The problem with this, of course, is that you have to then type all those notes into your laptop if you want them to be searchable and sortable. That is, unless you have a smart notebook. Click the link above to check out one of the most popular smart notebooks on the market today. It can convert your note to PDFs, which can then be converted to editable word docs. Plus, the notebook pages can be wiped clean and used again.  


A Smart Backpack


There are few things worse than having your phone or tablet die while you’re on campus, away from your apartment. That’s why we’re big fans of smart backpacks, which can charge your tablet and phone while you’re on the move. The backpack in the link above has a dedicated spot for a laptop and special anti-theft zippers for keeping your valuables safe. It’s cheap, it’s lightweight, and it can keep up with all your tech.


A Smart Speaker


Last up on our list is the ever-popular Amazon Echo. We’ve provided a link to the Echo Show, however, which has the added benefit of a screen. It can play your favorite songs and tell you the weather, sure, but it can also show you video recipes, instructional videos, and pretty much anything else you can think of. Perhaps most importantly, it can show you your calendar and remind you of upcoming deadlines and events. Every college student could use a personal assistant, right?
