CFgear has done it again. The world leader in branded flash drives has reached out to public school leaders across the nation and offered to help them go green. No, it’s not a ploy to institutionalize the hallways by coloring them prison green; instead, it’s a revolutionary way of rethinking education & books. Yep, I said “books.” Or, paper bound, tree breaking textbooks might be a more accurate way of wording it. Teachers at K-12 schools have been harping about the importance of saving the rain forest and protecting America’s forests … only to be too deeply involved in the tree butchering themselves by swamping students with geography textbooks, grammar textbooks, vocabulary booklets, phonics readers, and many, many more.
Now CFgear.com is offering the academia world a conscience free way of living, thinking & reading. Go hug a tree publicly and don’t be bashful in private. Schools can now go green by doing away with tree killing paper books and implementing textbooks on flash drives. Whaaaat??? Yep, you heard me right. C F gear offers the latest and greatest (and maybe even tomorrow’s unknown advances) in academic textbook storage all on a simple flash drive – be it a 1 Gb, 2 Gb, or even a 32 Gigabyte flash drive. Preload the textbook, lock on some quizzes and the exam (secured by special passwords), and you’ve got high school biology all taken care of. And don’t forget the wealth of space for … homework assignments, class notes, dissection videos (animals are different than trees, right?), microscopic close up photos, and a couple volumes of Gray’s Anatomy (of course).
And if going from paper textbooks to “book-on-a-drive” seems too far down the road to you, then how about this: Start small. If you’re the teacher with a conscience, then go with a flash drive for each class. Load up all your notes for chemistry on one drive and your notes for physics on another drive. In separate folders (on the chemistry drive), preload your powerpoints, handouts (ooops–that implies printed paper, doesn’t it?), quizzes, tests, exams, you name it. Based on the size of the harddrive, you may have plenty of space for short video clips–if it’s just a small drive (512 meg) you can even “load it up” the night before and then “unload it” in class the next day with the daily clips; with a large multi gigabyte drive, just keep the videos on from year to year.
Are you salivating yet? The possibilities with school flash drives are endless. Goodbye messy desk, hello USB drive portfolio. Guess you’d better start shopping around now for a handy little flash drive organizer with dedicated pockets for each class! And don’t forget the custom branding opportunities that promotional flash drives present. Get the school name laser etched onto each drive … or get the school name and “chemistry” etched onto one, and “biology” etched onto another. This could even work great for a school fundraiser … That might be a non trinket that even those tight walleted dads might fall for. Go bulk flash drives, go!
