With the exception of Kleenex, nearly everything else on the following back to school list is obsolete and replaced with just three items in the 21st century classroom.
The Chromebook Flip is a laptop and a tablet in one device. Type or write. It's up to you. It also comes with a full productivity suite of collaborative apps perfect for schoolwork: Docs, Drawing, Sheets, Slides. All apps work even when not connected to the internet. 9-hour battery life means you don’t have to worry about a power cord.
Practical and stylish lightweight case with three separate zippered compartments to hold whatever else a student might want to bring to school. Perfect for headphones, tissues, keys, and makeup.
For those times when you need the internet, but don’t have a connection, use a MiFi. This one can connect up to five devices. Consider splitting the cost with a few classmates.
Cost: $59.88 for a device. Data plans range from $10 - $45 per month.
