We’re getting towards that time of year again that children love and parents fear, as the academic year comes to a close in a couple of weeks time. It’s during this period that classes start to wind down and teachers start preparing their pupils to move on to different schools/colleges, which can be quite a daunting prospect. The main concern of teachers with pupils leaving school is to try and round off their overall experience in a positive way with many choosing to give out goodies ranging from the typical photos, cards and mugs, all the way to the classic class tea towel.
In recent years however, tech gifts have been the craze among many school leavers and teachers, due in part to their high quality and also because they are likely to be used more frequently. Adding a school logo or pupils’ name to any tech product also adds a personal touch which helps create a lasting impression.
Below we take a look at 5 Tech Gifts that are sure to help any teacher obtain that level of coolness with their class while also making them the envy of his or her fellow colleagues.
1. USB’s – The Classroom Commodity
The USB stick has been a staple item in most classrooms over the past decade. Beyond the fact that they are damn useful to store data onto, they also remain a highly customizable product which can be produced in a variety of shapes and sizes, the most popular of which has to be the classic Twister USB. With most USB sticks it’s pretty straightforward to print/engrave a custom logo, crest or even an individual name onto them, allowing for the creation of a truly personalised product. As well the data uploaded and stored on each stick could be anything that pupils might want to look at in the future, such as class pictures, videos or even old school projects.
2. Epic Earphones!
Earphones in general are a frequently used product among children. With younger children now having access to smartphones and tablets, it makes sense to give pupils something they would be able to use day to day thus the Epic Earphones. Aptly named due to their high quality sound as well as being comfortable to wear, these earphones make a great tech gift to handout. The case as well, comes with plenty of room for school logos and messages which again adds to the overall sentimental value.
3. Tiny Speakers, Big Sound
The film August Rush stated that music is all around us, all we have to do is listen, well in this instance you wouldn’t need to listen very hard, with 30 or so pupils blasting out music on the Rainbow Bluetooth Speaker. The chances are you’re bound to hear something even if it isn’t white noise. Despite its size the speaker produces a good quality sound whilst still being able to fit in most pockets. As well the trim colour which surrounds the branding on top, lights up when in use, making it even more fun to play with. If you’re thinking about ordering a batch of these I would suggest giving them out at the end of the day to avoid any lasting hearing loss.
4. Power banks with a Torch?
Power Banks continue to be a popular product among many smart phone owners, however they can be used to charge a variety of different devices via a USB lead and can be the perfect gift for any kid who wants to go out exploring all day without worrying about their device losing power. The Rainbow Torch Power Bank in particular is also fitted with a bright LED light with three different settings to choose from, all can be activated at a touch of a button which adds to the overall enjoyment. As with the other products there is also room for a school crest/logo to be added as well.
5. Share the Experience with Earphone Splitter’s
Audio Splitters make a great gift for school kids who like to show off the latest viral video or listen to music with friends without the desire to keep banging heads together. With the PXK Earbuds Splitter in particular, the suction cap can be used as a stand making it even easier for two of you to watch videos without lifting a finger. The Audio Splitter also makes a great little gift for any school children who are going off on holiday over the summer as well.
