I think I've mentioned that I'm a school and office supply fanatic. Forget the mall - just give me an afternoon in Office Depot, and I'm a happy girl. :)
Needless to say, I was excited when I received the Studypod in the mail to review for The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew. This slick little gadget, invented by a schoolteacher, is designed to hold books in an upright position, making it easier for students (and anyone who uses books for that matter) to read, study, take notes, follow lab directions while completing a science experiment, and do a wide variety of other tasks that involve a book. I can even use it to hold my recipe books while I cook!
Here are a few benefits of using the Studypod:
•Prevents constant looking down and reduces neck strain when you're reading or notetaking
•Increases the size of your desk area/work surface
•Prevents your book from closing and causing you to lose your place
•A nifty way to display art prints or anything else that you want students to spend time looking at
•Hold virtually any size book up to 2.25" in thickness. (That's pretty thick!)
•Has a pocket for storing your pens, highlighters, notecards, calculator, and other study items.
•Folds up easily to a small size, and you can carry it with you anywhere.
Even though the Studypod was designed with students in mind, I think this would be a handy item for homeschool and classroom teachers, musicians, cooks, crafters, business professionals, and really anyone who uses books or notes.
The Studypod retails for $19.95 and is available in black, blue, and pink.
