This year school life is going to look a little different than it has. Many schools will continue with “School from home” to try and prevent the further spread of COVID-19. All families with children will need back to school tech at home. So this is the perfect time to look into some new back to school tech.
Some school districts do provide laptops and Wifi equipment, but many schools expect students to have their own devices and accessories like headphones.
I present you here some of the best back to school tech deals.
Back to school tech – Router
A speedy, reliable internet connection is not dependent only on your service provider. A high-quality router ensures that your internet connection is stable and speedy. If your router is more than five years old, it’s probably not able to keep up with today’s needs and you should look into replacing it. New routers support current wireless standards and are optimized for blazing fast speed. A new generation router also supports a mesh wireless network for better coverage in all parts of your home. If you’re lucky, you may not need to buy a new router; just updating the router firmware could add new functionality

Back to school tech – Headphones
A good set of headphones is essential for learning. I personally prefer over-ear headphones for daily usage. Earbuds tend to get tangled up. Also, over-ear headphones are better at reducing background noise. However, it would be best to keep in mind the volume level, especially with smaller kids.
