back to school tech 2018

As we approach the final few weeks of summer, students and parents are beginning to shop for back to school items. Along with a beloved backpack, awesome agenda, and some noise blocking headphones - check out the tech items listed below that will make returning to school a little more, exciting.

Bluetooth Speaker

Sometimes the speaker on your phone isn’t loud enough, and that’s where the waterproof Anker speaker comes in. A combination of bass, bluetooth and a prolonged battery life will have you enjoying music for hours, where ever & whenever.


Echo dot

If you’ve been curious about virtual assistants, now would be the perfect time to invest in a voice controlled hands-free assistant. Simplify your life by making calls, sending messages & controling smart devices in the home with the Amazon echo dot.


Smart Plug

Compatible with both Google Assistant & Amazon Alexa, you can turn any device into a smart device with the TP-Link Kasa smart plug. Once you download the Kasa app you can control smart devices from your cell phone. You can turn devices on and off, set schedules and / or set timers.


Streaming Stick

Turn any TV into a Smart TV with the Roku streaming stick by simply connecting the streaming stick into the HDMI on your TV for seamless viewing access to a variety of subscription services (ie. Netflix & Spotify).
