Education has changed a lot as the tides of technology have changed with it for the better (well, mostly). Scholastics are nothing new to you. However, as someone who gets a kick out of learning new stuff both in the classroom and on the fly. And while your gear may have upgraded since the last time you sought higher education, it still needs some sprucing. So dive into one or all of these products for your back-to-education needs. 

As an added bonus, you'll also be doing some good in the process after your purchase is complete. For every purchase from our Back to Education collection, $0.50 of proceeds will be donated to students or kids in need. You'll get to vote on where the money goes, so you can give a little helping hand where you think the kids need it the most. Act fast — our Back to Education Event only runs from 8/10 – 8/24, and we'll announce the charity that received your contribution after it concludes!

Storage Drives

Portable SSD External Hard Drive 2TB – $34.99; originally $40

Even if you're nice and organized, your computer can only hold so many little folders in one place. Two terabytes of hard drive should be plenty for your spreadsheet, reading material, and downloaded YouTube videos (we won't tattle if they're not education-focused.)

Audio Gear

TREBLAB Z2 Noise-Canceling Headphones with Bluetooth 5.0 – $78.99; originally $259

Great for the gym, quiet time at home, or getting into the zone with your textbooks, these Amazon's Choice headphones connect with Bluetooth 5.0 for a longer range and clearer sound. Couple all of that with the T-Quiet active noise canceling technology and you've got yourself the perfect pair.

Not to be outdone, these buds' superb noise canceling technology allows you to get in the zone so that you don't have to worry about disruptions when you're studying. Plus, they have 240 hours of standby time, so they're just as ready to roll as you are!

Desk Accessories

KeySmart TaskPad Wireless Charging Desk Pad – $99.99; originally $119

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 – $100.99

We hear the cries of people with extra long reach and the wails with pleas for more space. This trackpad is 30% larger than the previous trackpad, which is great for those of us who need room to create.

Apple Magic Trackpad with Multi-Touch Surface – $117.99; originally $129

Rated 4.7 out of 5 on Amazon (and also cheaper than Amazon's price), this Apple Magic Keyboard is a worthwhile wireless upgrade when you want it to be, but it also includes a USB cord in case you need to charge while typing away. 

Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad – $117.99; originally $129

We're not big on magic tricks, but when we take a closer look at this keyboard's responsive keystroke, document navigation controls, and numerical pad, we become believers.t's Bluetooth-compatible and totally rechargeable, which account for half the magic.

Apple Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and Numeric Keypad – $161.99; originally $179

Featuring the same keys as the Magic Keyboard featured above, this full-sized alternative includes Touch ID. And, for those of us who aren't as up to snuff on tech lingo, that's just a fancy way of saying it will only have eyes (or touch) for you.

Last but not least is for the folks searching for a wireless mouse with a multi-touch surface. The Magic Mouse 3 features just that, making it a breeze to scroll through web pages, reports, and school PDF sources. It's right here waiting for you in its rechargeable glory.
