School at home? The technology your child will need

The second period of classes was abruptly interrupted by the Coronavirus and everything indicates that the third period of the school has to be remotely. The technology that is within our reach today will allow it, however, it is necessary to start preparing the classroom at home.

Computadores Portáteis

In the field of notebook computers, the first suggestion goes to Lenovo's IdeaPad C340. This computer offers a 14 inch FullHD screen, 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. Its processor is a 10th generation Intel Core i3-10110U.

The screen is tactile and the keyboard can be folded back so that it can also be used as a tablet. In addition, there is also a digital pen.

HP DeskJet 3639 Multifunction Printer


Many families now find themselves receiving homework for their children by e-mail, but without a printer to print them. An option that costs around 60 € is an HP all-in-one with Wi-Fi. So, without having to connect the PC to the printer, you can have it printed directly from your smartphone, tablet or laptop.


Other accessories

WH-CH510 wireless headphones

To attend classes and be able to interact without being disturbed or disturbing other people in the house, the ideal is to have headphones. These Sony have no wires, so they can be connected via Bluetooth to any device, have great autonomy and are still quite accessible. 40 €.

Hama Basic4Phone wired headset

It is evident that there are even more affordable options that end up fulfilling the same purpose, as is the case of these Hama Basic4Phone phones that cost € 10.

Hotspot 4G

It is true that there are more and more people with Internet at home, however, there are still many who do not have and do not want to remain loyal to any fixed Internet operator. Thus, only for this period of school at home, you can have a hotspot by hiring a mobile service.
