With all the changes happening in the world due to the pandemic, including the widespread school closings and the switch to online classrooms, you may be left wondering how best to adapt to these recent and abrupt changes?

Although there may be bumps along the way in transitioning and keeping up-to-date on all of your homework assignments, educational lessons, and exams, we’re here to help you ease that switch with studying and learning methods that work no matter where you are.

Hamelin’s smart notebooks transform the digital classroom experience.

Many students from elementary school to grad school and beyond are faced with having to turn their kitchens and living rooms into personal classrooms. That means your study efforts will have to kick into high gear, and so should your school supplies.

How hamelin’s notebook can change the way you learn:

  1. Classroom methods are replicated. You can still handwrite your notes when listening to online seminars, mapping out math equations, watching science demos, and more. You still gain all the benefits of handwritten notes, with extra perks included.

  2. You’ll never lose your notes. Never worry about misplacing your notes at home or a sibling accidentally coloring over them. (Although our vibrant colored notebooks do make for a fun coloring book!) All of your notes can be saved right to your phone by taking a quick photo via our free SCRIBZEE® app for easy access and organization.

  3. You can easily share your notes. No need for broadband, high-speed internet when you can share your notes right from your phone! Skip the in-person meetup, too, when you need to discuss them. Instead, share your notes with friends directly through the SCRIBZEE® app and use Facetime, Skype, or a simple phone call for a review session. Stay safe and smart!

Once you have all your notes in one place, you can transform them into study tools with our Flash 2.0 flashcards. Study and quiz yourself both with the physical flashcards when you need a break from all the digital resources or practice right on your phone with the digital flashcards if you want to keep track of the material you know and need to study more. Just like our spiral notebooks, simply snap, save, and start studying in seconds.

Need a break from the digital classroom?

Being online for longer hours with your digital learning centers might be tiring. If you’re looking to give your eyes a break, here are some fun activities you can use your notebooks for, too!

  • Play virtual tic-tac-toe. Being stuck at home doesn’t have to be boring or lonely. Use your hamelin notebook to draw out a tic-tac-toe board and share that page back and forth between a friend for a remote version of a favorite classic. The same goes for a fun version of hangman as well!

  • Keep a daily journal. Record your thoughts, feelings, and ideas during this historic period of time. Not only will it be something to look back on, but also it will help you clear your mind of all the stress building up.

  • Start a collaborative group story. The storyline, plot twists, and the ending is all up to you. Start by writing out one line or a few, and then send it along via SCRIBZEE® to a friend who can then add a few lines of writing, too. Once everyone in the group has had a few turns to write, compile the story into one and voilà - everyone's an author! Plus you have a new, entertaining story to read in the meantime. 

Staying connected, educated, and even entertained, just became a lot easier! We hope everyone stays safe and keeps up with healthy habits like hand-washing, social-distancing, and the like while learning remotely. Hamelin is here for you, and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us!

Be Smart. Be Connected. Be Safe. Be Noteworthy.
