A classroom set of iPads can be difficult to manage on a day-to-day basis. As a teacher, it's important to ask yourself a few questions before deploying the iPads:

What's the most efficient way to sync all of the iPads to one laptop?
• How will the iPads be charged on a daily basis?
• Where will the iPads be stored when not in use? Will they be secured from theft?

Fortunately there are a variety of products available to help you answer these questions.

Syncing and Charging Multiple iPads (Carts & Cabinets)

  • iPad Carts are available with sync and charge capabilities, or charging capabilities alone (for 20 or 40 iPads)
  • Table top iPad cabinets can sync and charge up to 16 iPads and can store up to 20 iPads.
  • Security is not a priority for all cart-makers, but companies like Datamation Systems provide the most secure products.
