Why Youth Branded USB Flash Drives Make Great Learning Tools
Custom and promotional USB drives have no limits to how they can be designed, however, there is a demographic that is by and large untapped by the market—students, particularly grades K-8. Ironically, youth branded USB flash drives can be some of the most fun to create.
It’s no secret that for today’s kids, technology operation is second nature (how many cute YouTube videos have we seen of babies playing with iPads?) so custom flash drives should reflect their love of digital devices. At CES 2012, we saw how Dane-Elec is expanding into the tween market with flash drives that identify with the demand for color, fun, function and personality in every USB. And it’s a smart move.
Below, we’ve listed some of the reasons that parents, teachers, schools and other kid-centric organizations should consider youth branded USB drives.
- Increased engagement. A youth branded flash drive can get a student more interested in a project at hand when he or she has a sense of pride and identity toward the storage device. A cool shape or concept like a wristband USB or necklace could be all it takes to make the difference between using it every day and forgetting it at home.
- Enhanced learning experiences. Every child has a different learning style, and student flash drives can help make their education easier. Teachers and parents can load their custom USB drives with a vast selection of education software that operates like any portable app or with multimedia. For some students, being able to have more visual stimulation and interaction than a textbook could make a huge, positive impact on grades.
- Cuts down on clutter. With youth branded flash drives, gone are the days when students have to lug around 20 pounds worth of textbooks in their backpack. Custom flash drives also teach students that organization can be easy, since all they have to do is drag and drop their files into the subject’s respective folder. As a result, you eliminate the chance of homework in misplaced folders, crunched in a textbook or crumpled at the bottom of a backpack.
