by David Andrade


What I think students should have in their school bag (high school and college) as essential materials.


1. Laptop or Tablet and charger – depends on student needs, school policies, etc.


2. Notetaking app – Evernote, Simplenote, etc.


3. Cloud file service – ok, not in bag, but a must have to backup and access files


4. Flash drive for backup


5. Smartphone and Charger. Apps: Evernote, Cloud file service, calculator, LMS app for their school, etc.


6. Pen and pencil and eraser


7. Notepad


8. 3-ring binder for paper notes and handouts


9. Mini stapler


10. Hole punch to put papers into binder
