Are you looking for the right tools to boost your lessons? Is it time to upgrade your tech devices so that your student can benefit the most from audio-based courses and projects? Then consider this great deal on audio equipment for your homeschool, like the JBL Flip 6 Portable Stereo Speaker.

JBL Flip 6 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

The JBL can be used with most Bluetooth-enabled devices, as well as home computer systems. It streams music wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or laptop and makes listening to eBooks, music, educational videos, and online courses crystal clear. Or you can purchase an auxiliary cord and connect it to your desktop computer. When I first hooked up the JBL up to our school computer so the kids could listen to Juanita the Spanish Lobster, I was so impressed by the sound quality! We've always loved our classical music downloads from Maestro Classics, but listening to them with such a high-quality speaker takes the whole experience to a new level for my kids. It's like you can hear each note from each instrument and the sound just wraps around you.

There are two ways to use the speaker: resting flat or standing vertically on it's side. The buttons are on one end, so you can easily access them whichever way you choose to set up your speaker. I like that the buttons "click" when pressed so that my children know if they've turned on the speaker.

A Portable and Waterproof Speaker

I love that it is portable, too, because with warmer weather on the way, we sometimes like to take our lessons outside or to the park. A change of setting can really amplify a lesson, and make learning much more fun. You don't have to worry too much, either, about it getting beat up or wet as it is designed to be waterproof!

The best part, in my opinion, is the 12 hours of playtime.

The JBL also has a speaker-phone, built-in microphone, and call-answer button that lets you easily take phone calls. So if your kids value their time on the phone with abuelita and abuelito, but maybe you aren't so keen on them holding a cell phone next to their heads, then this is a great solution.

You should hurry into the store to test and try it out yourself, as well as other great audio products – from home theater solutions (documentaries anyone?), to car audio (homeschooling on the road?), portable speakers (examples above), and headphones (homeschooling more than one child; brain-building music to help your child focus). 

If you're ready to purchase a JBL speaker for yourself or loved one, then take advantage of your Amazon Prime membership and get this great deal.

What's your favorite homeschool tech device?
