Education magazine UK – Tackling mobile device deployments in Schools with LocknCharge’s Tablet and iPad Cart
James Symons, CEO of LocknCharge, on mobile device deployments in schools

According to BESA (the British Educational Suppliers Association) computer technology has played a central part in the drive to raise standards in schools and as a result, the UK can claim to be one of the world leaders in seeking to harness new technology to improve teaching and learning in the classroom.
Schools are moving tentatively towards a system in which each child has his or her own device. Tablets and iPads are now popular in both primary and secondary schools, however they can cause logistical problems if not managed properly. An iPad for every pupil is a significant stretch on the budget, and this investment needs to be protected with suitable security and storage devices.
Technology has many advantages in the classroom, but unlike textbooks, tablets have to be ‘managed’. They can’t just be left at the end of the day in a pile in the corner. They need to be charged, locked away and looked after. It is important that teacher time is not impacted by tablets, which are of course supposed to be a positive addition to the classroom.

The Basket system allows Gene to grab a basket in each hand and carry them to where they are needed. “We have limited time with the participants, so being able to grab a Basket and placing them on a table give participants immediate access to the devices. I can do that in a matter of seconds which meets our need tremendously.” – Gene Howell, Manager for Educational Technology at Australian Institute of Management in Western Australia.
