Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ mobile accessories, has the ideal companions to fit the digital classroom this back to school season! We’ve highlighted six fun and affordable gadgets to work alongside today’s technology used to facilitate learning — from tablets and laptops to apps and smartphones.
The use of pen and paper in the classroom has evolved into deployments of Chromebooks™, laptops and tablets in schools. As the rapid adoption of these digital tools in education increases, so does the need for smart accessories to enhance the learning process between educators and students.
From keyboard cases that customize your tablet’s app usage in the classroom to iconic Trapper Keeper and Pee-Chee universal tablet cases, Kensington offers a visually pleasing and performance-enhancing selection of accessories to make the grade with your device of choice. A cool wireless presenter to get your point across and a wireless mouse will help you get schoolwork done no matter where you go. Don’t forget to add drop protection to your tablet with a rugged case to protect your mobile device all year round and fit everything you need to carry on campus in a comfortable backpack.
2014 Essential Kensington Back to School Gadgets
Kensington BlackBelt™ 2nd Degree Rugged Case for iPad Air™ (Black - K97065WW; Plum - K97078WW; Red- K97079WW; $49.99)
Accidents happen, and someday your iPad Air is probably going to get dropped. That’s why Kensington made the BlackBelt 2nd Degree Rugged Case. By surrounding your iPad Air in a strong, cushioned rubber layer, it can survive drops and bumps because it offers premium shock absorption. It also features a built-in hand strap, multi-position stand and a screen protector.
Kensington KeyFolio Fit™ Universal 10” Tablet Case for Android™ (Black - K97310US; $79.99)
With so many 10-inch tablets available in the market, finding a keyboard case that’s versatile enough to fit all the slight dimension changes is more important than ever. That’s why we developed the KeyFolio Fit for tablets running Android. A silicone 4-corner base uses stay straps to securely keep the tablet in place. But the most exciting feature has to be the TapLaunch™, which lets you easily customize three shortcut keys so you can quickly start your favorite apps straight from your keyboard. And speaking of the keyboard, it’s integrated right into the case and syncs fast to your tablet through a Bluetooth connection. With 6 rows of high-performance scissor keys, you can type with optimal productivity. Soft interior lining keeps your tablet protected from scratches and damage, and a magnetic flap keeps the case securely closed when you’re on the go.

Now you can cover your tablet with a universal case that will immediately take you down memory lane. The hair may have been bigger and the colors way brighter, but keeping everything organized never goes out of style. So check out all our designs and find the one for your 9-10” or 7-8” tablet that will have you feeling like one of the cool kids again.
