Technology has made and continues to make enormous leaps, greatly improving different aspects of daily lives, also significantly influencing areas such as studying and drawing.
In this sense, high-tech solutions have been adopted in schools, colleges and universities classrooms, thus offering students new tools for studying.
The tablet has become a tool that represents a significant enhancement of the read and write which, until some time ago, was the sole responsibility of books and encyclopedias.
Choosing the right tablet for college
In selecting the best tablets for studying in classes, we need to take into account the technical characteristics that a student mainly needs.
Even cheap tablets can take the role of expensive laptops and notebooks
The first and far-most important aspect is the price tag. Tablets can completely replace expensive notebooks and notepads for taking notes and with a decent price cover all the needs of a college or university student.
Screen size and overall weight depends on the mobility needs
It is true that a tablet with a larger display offers greater reading capability, but it is equally true that much depends on your needs related to mobility.
A large screen tablet may allow easier reading and writing, but in the same time will be more difficult carry inside tour backpack.
A possibility to use a digital pen and a keyboard simplify the use
With a smart pen you can write freehand, taking notes (both textual and graphic) and have the opportunity to digitize, save, share and edit your notes at any time. Similarly, the possibility to attach a keyboard is highly important.
There are bluetooth keyboards or even covers for tablets with integrated keyboard; thanks to them the writing speed is considerably faster, therefore it is a good practice to also evaluate this aspect.
A long lasting battery is needed to resist during classes
Finally, the aspect of autonomy is to be considered. Usually you have to leave home early in the morning for college and go home only in the evening.
In these cases, the tablet must be usable throughout the course of the day, having lessons at different times. For this reason it is important to have a tablet with a good long lasting battery.
Note: though this point is clearly important aspect, it should not be looked at first since purchasing an affordable portable power bank could easily keep your tablet up and running.
