It just makes life easier…
by Andrew Waldren – Waynewood Elementary School
After receiving a generous donation of 30 iPads, I needed a way to securely store and charge the devices. Syncing apps on this many iPads was also a concern, so I started researching my options. I checked out a few solutions, but a colleague made a strong recommendation for the iQ 32 Cart, which she had purchased. She said the cart offered great features and a keypad lock – a very important factor in the purchase. After talking with her and my contact at SMS Tech Solutions, I was sold on the LocknCharge iQ 32 Cart. I made this choice because of the value for the money I paid and for the user-friendly features offered by the cart. The ability to sync and charge 32 devices and securely store them with a keypad lock is exactly what I was looking for.
Our iQ 32 Cart has remained mobile so far, although we are exploring other potential options. This mobility has allowed teachers and classes at varying grade levels to use the cart. The cart usually remains in their rooms, often with several teachers accessing the iPads by taking advantage of the modular basket system. The basket system makes it easy to distribute iPads to different rooms when needed. Our teachers really like the fact that everything about the cart is so well organized and easy to set up. The fact that it is keyless is also very important for them.
Overall, this cart has made life much easier for me as the school technology specialist and for the teachers as they facilitate their class sessions. The keyless system makes the charging cart easy to access, and the cart’s size and design allows teachers to move it as needed. The easy access to the iPads helps the students to be very creative in their classes. Students have been able to research, organize and present their schoolwork – all on the iPad – and sometimes all within one day.
We are in the process of ordering our second LocknCharge cart because we have been so successful with the first one. We just ordered more iPads so it makes sense to order our second cart. I would fully recommend that anyone looking to securely store, charge and sync up to 32 iPads go with the LocknCharge iQ32 Cart!
