Books and papers are being replaced by tablets and Chromebooks. But with this influx of devices, there are several challenges that teachers and school administrators now face when dealing with the physical impact of devices in the classroom.
For instance, when the devices are not in use, they need to be charged to ensure the next group of users have sufficient battery life to last through the teaching session. Most classrooms have a limited number of power outlets, and even multi-device charging strips might not be sufficient if a classroom or lab has a dozen or more devices.
Imagine trying to find space to charge 30 devices at the same time, or trying to quickly identify a specific device that was last used by a specific student. The process of collecting and deploying the devices in a classroom could easily take away a large chunk of the valuable learning time from the students.
Lastly, most schools do not allow their students to take devices home after school, leaving educators to figure out a way to secure them so they won’t be stolen. Losing devices to theft not only leads to lost learning opportunities, it could also be a huge financial hurdle to replace them.
We are at a critical juncture in the way education is delivered to kids. It’s seemingly changing faster than ever before. So if it seems like deploying a large amount of devices has become a headache, let Kensington provide the solution.
