10 ways students can use an Android tablet


Let’s face it, merely relying on books is no longer sufficient for a well-rounded education. In this digital age, a technological device is equally necessary to further aid you in your academic pursuits. Most students go for a laptop either because they know it is going to be useful in their workflow or simply because they think it is the only option. But, what if you can get the same work done with a device that is more portable, easy on the pocket, and function like a smartphone? You must have guessed it by now, we are talking about a tablet, specifically an Android tablet. Read on to find out the best uses of an Android tablet for students.

10 uses of an Android tablet for students

1) The most common use could be just surfing the internet and scrolling endless web pages. You can keep many books in PDF format and read them on the go.

2) If you are someone who writes a lot, whether for yourself or academic purposes then a tablet would be a more intuitive device for you. Especially working with apps like Google Docs and Sheets are easier on this device.

3) Our classrooms have shifted from physical rooms to online video calls in the past couple of years. And you can attend all those online classes on an Android tablet. They are handy, light, and easier to interact with.

4) Note-making or taking down some notes during an online class is the reason why tablets are so popular among students. Combine it with a pencil (stylus) and you feel quite natural writing on a piece of screen.

5) This is specifically for those who like to draw or whose workflow is more creativity oriented. You would love to draw on a tablet. This just feels more natural. And an added advantage is that your device is super portable.

6) We always try to push the boundaries creatively. Whether you like to create content or not, Android tablets can easily handle a slight bit of photo and video editing depending upon what kind of tablet you have.

7) After you’re exhausted with all the classes, you can refresh yourself by watching some movie or listening to songs as Android tablets make for an amazing media consumption device.

8) How can we forget to include gaming in the potential use case scenarios? On a large vivid display, you can enjoy the game even more. To take it up a notch you can use a wireless controller to make this a great gaming setup.

9) There are several Android tablets these days, from the likes of Samsung or Lenovo, with features that can turn the tablet’s UI to replicate a Windows laptop. It will still run Android apps, but with the flexibility of a laptop.

10) One of the use cases which is not much talked about is using your tablet as a secondary screen. If your workflow requires such a setup, then consider this as well.

As with any device, there are pros and cons but in the case of an Android tablet, there are cons only if you’re looking at nitpicking.
