Device Storage Carts Protect Your Investment
Device storage carts and sync solutions are items that might get pushed aside in an attempt to save money on a large purchase of personal devices like laptops, Chromebooks, iPads or Android tablets for the classroom.
However, as daily use increases and storage, charging and management of these devices becomes a heavy workload.
You'll soon realize you've outgrown the cute storage ideas on Pinterest or the washtubs and office filing systems that double as storage for your expensive classroom devices.
Device storage carts provide a secure, protected out-of-the-way storage for your classroom devices. Carts come in a variety of styles - desk, floor or wall models - and provide easy access for students to obtain devices. Carts should offer some type of secure locking system.
Device storage carts make it easy to transfer shared devices from classroom to classroom. Some sit right on your desk to keep your classroom tablets an arm's length away. Some are designed in such a way that elementary students can roll them down the hall with ease.
Device storage carts make it easy to keep devices charged and ready when you need them. Some carts sync your devices as a wired solution or through your wireless network. Others offer timed charging cycles to protect device battery life.
