Affordable Technology for the Classroom

When I first started teaching, I worked in a low-income school with limited access to technology. I quickly learned that there are lots of ways you can incorporate technology into your classroom without breaking the bank. Commonly used items in the classroom include computers, tablets, interactive whiteboards, voice amplifiers, answer buzzers, robots and coding toys. In addition to visiting your tech department at school, Amazon is also a great place to check. They offer a wide range of electronics and technology for the classroom at great prices.

Below we have created a list of affordable educational technology items available on Amazon with our suggestions for teachers. This site is updated daily, but prices and availability are subject to change at any time. As always, happy teaching!
