Tips to Help Get Your Devices Ready For the New School Year

As summer comes to a close, back-to-school preparation is on the minds of parents, school students, and teachers everywhere. That said, it’s always good to get your devices ready for the new school year. CPR has you covered whether you use a laptop such as a Chromebook or rely solely on an Apple iPad or another tablet for your studies. Read on as we outline how to ensure it’s secure and equipped with the right gear, apps, and accessories.

3 Ways to Prepare Your Devices For the Start of the School Year

Back-to-school prep is fundamental for gearing up for the first day of school. You’ve likely stocked up on school supplies and other essentials, but when’s the last time you’ve ensured your technology was ready to go? Below, we’ll cover the top device management recommendations to help ensure the new school year gets off to a good start, whether you’re a middle school, high school, college student, parent, or teacher.

1. Enhance Security Measures

Regardless of whether you’re a remote learning student or attend a public school district or university, you should routinely check your devices’ online safety and security. After all, cyber attacks can pop up on home and school devices the minute you’re browsing the web unprotected. On top of running virus and malware programs, it’s also not a bad idea to have you or your school’s IT staff look into installing software plans with enhanced protection features. These include tools such as phishing blockers, ransomware, and firewalls.

2. Gear Up with Tech Protection

Tech accessories are a must for keeping your devices in tip-top shape, especially if you’re traveling to and from school. Your devices are prone to cracks, water damage, and even drops as you carry them from home to the classroom. Screen protectors, covers, and cases can go a long way in shielding and extending the life of your devices.

3. Download Productivity Apps and Tools

Productivity is key to staying on task and maintaining good grades. Yet, with the rising popularity of remote and hybrid learning post-pandemic, it’s not uncommon for students to lose focus and get off track with schoolwork. There are several types of organizational and productivity tools on the market that you can download to your devices and use to your advantage. At a minimum, we suggest utilizing ones that contain calendars and e-checklists. However, there are a plethora of other options you can download depending on your specific needs. From flashcard generators to proofreading apps to note-taking tools, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.

We offer several repair services to protect against water damage, screen damage, battery wear, and more.
