The Indiana Lawyer recently posted my article on being tech-ready for back to school.

From the article:

Some other ideas to get ready for back to school:

  1. Back up your device(s). There’s nothing worse than putting in all this electronic information and losing it due to an unforeseen event.

  2. Buy a portable battery charger for your (and your kids’) device(s). Who knows when you will be somewhere and need power?

  3. Consider protective cases for your device(s). If the device will routinely be out in the elements, have an appropriate case.

  4. Set up a charging station where all devices land at the end of the day (and hopefully stay). No need to be tied down 24/7.

  5. In the midst of the back-to-school excitement and confusion, enjoy each moment with your kids. They grow up fast.

What are your favorite tech and non-tech back to school tips?
