The use of 2-in-1 convertible laptops in homeschool

by - Thursday, March 30, 2017

Lenovo Yoga, HP Spectre x360, Dell Inspiron Convertible Touchscreen laptops, etc. These laptops come with a touchscreen that tilts or bends all the way to the back and transform into a tablet.

These kind of laptops are great for homeschool. You can use them as regular computers for your weekly planners, for searching, purchasing or creating more materials for your homeschool, and then you can convert them into Tablet Mode as well, and use it to show educational videos to the kids, or even as e-book readers for read-aloud time on Portrait rotation.

Although we use physical books in our homeschool, I download new books from the Kindle app (some children's books are free for a limited time) from time to time for more read-aloud or bedtime stories.

With Windows 10 featuring an App Store, you can install several apps, like Endless Reader or GS Preschool games, or Khan Academy, Open Course, Programming Tutorials for your kids to learn. Then when you are done, and you want to do some other important work, you can return it back to Laptop mode with a full keyboard to type on. My laptop even came with a stylus for more creative work.

These laptops are also a little more durable than normal laptops, due to their flexibility. My Dell Inspiron 13-7359 for instance, has dropped multiple times on the floor and abused terribly by my young children. Other than minor scratches on the chassis, it's still working great.

If you are on the market for a computer, and you are a homeschool mom, then you should definitely consider getting a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. You can find plenty of options at various prices through Amazon here.
