Back to school, whether in person or virtual, has taken on a whole new look since the beginning of the pandemic. All schools from elementary to high school, even colleges, have had to adapt their teaching techniques as students and teachers adapt to how they learn and educate.
Classrooms normally filled with students are now primarily virtual sites for teachers to stream classes online using platforms such as GoogleMeet or Zoom. Everywhere, families are feeling the impact of this new hybrid education. As a reseller, you are now in a position to help those families and schools adapt to virtual learning. Many school districts have had to purchase thousands of electronic devices like laptop computers and hotspots to provide connection links to virtual learning. Households now require additional power protection products provided by vendors such as Tripp-Lite, desktop printers like those available from Brother and Canon, and of course the toner and ink to keep those printers operating. Many schools are also printing supplemental packets to send home to students to enhance the virtual classroom and provide additional resources to those families that may not have access. This requires more printers and supplies.
Not all areas of the country are experiencing as much school-from-home. Many schools across the United States that are still holding in-person classes face-to-face with students and teachers. In addition to the usual supplies like paper, ink and toner, these schools now have a need for KN-95 Masks, Hand Sanitizer, and Sanitizing Wipes. All of these products are available at ARLINGTON in stock and ready to drop ship to your customers.
