There are few items that unite student and teacher in approval like promotional USB flash drives do. In the education environment – no matter which side of the teacher’s desk you sit – USB flash drives have become a very useful gadget. They can make the task of trying to get through the school day with your sanity intact an easier one.
Students have long told stories of the dog that ate their homework. It’s a fact that assignments and essays sometimes disappear at very inconvenient times. USB flash drives mean that students can keep all their work in one place – reducing the likelihood that they’ll lose stuff – and not have to carry so many notebooks and textbooks around.
“With the convenience of cloud storage, USB flash drives might seem like old news, but the best are portable, fast, near-indestructible, and offer tons of space—enough that they’re worth having” – Lifehack
They can also access teacher notes, assignments in progress and any other course information at any time – anywhere they have access to a computer. For students with a lot on their mind, USB drives serve as a hub around which to base their studies and keep a track of all their work.
For teachers, the drives serve as a way to communicate efficiently and effectively with a class. Teachers can easily access material or a submitted assignment. And, they can load a student’s drive with something they’ve misplaced or with extra information to guide them through a task.
USB Drives Keep Things Digital
As well as offering great advantages in the classroom, student flash drives offer a way to run electronic courses mainly offline. That is a big deal for students that don’t have easy or reliable access to an internet connection. Be that for geographical or for social reasons. Schools and colleges all over are turning to USB flash drives to deliver revolutionary new methods of education.
Promotional USB flash drives don’t just represent a good way to organize work. They use a solid-state chip to store data. So, they’re not prone to being magnetically corrupted while being moved around – like disc drives are. They are also shock proof, and that is great news in the rumble-tumble world of high school.
Flash drives also save students money. “For less than $10, your teen could buy a flash drive instead [of a printer], save his 20-page term paper on it, and print the paper in the campus computer lab, which you are likely already paying for,” writes Kiplinger.
USB drives can take a lot more physical abuse than more fragile forms of data storage.
USB drives are portable, practical, and custom etched with details of different courses, students, teachers or educational establishments. As such, they are a smart choice for both students and teachers.
Promoting Your School or College with USB Flash Drives
For colleges and universities that seek to recruit the best talent, USB drives can be loaded with promotional and informational material. Open to all forms of media, a professionally presented USB drive can even be loaded with virtual tours of campus locations like classrooms and libraries. You can use a drive to deliver course information and even presentations by tutors, complete with their full academic credentials.
Promotional USB drives offer a new way to present your educational establishment at its best to potential students and even employees from out of town. Additionally, when it comes to a new intake, they’re a valuable and paper-free option for orientation purposes.
Schools and colleges can go fully digital with welcome packs, maps and multi-media open-day information. For educational establishments that want to present a paperless, eco-friendly image, USB drives are ideal.
Promotional USB flash drives are extremely affordable too. And they’re not only practical in terms of cost. They make the whole education process a lot easier. And the good news is that we have some designs that are extremely hard to misplace. Which is even greater news for end-of-year grades.
