Organization is an important part of managing a smooth running classroom. When it comes to iPod Touches and iPads, it can be tricky to figure out ways to keep them charged, accessible, and safe; so I thought I’d show you a few ways I’ve seen classrooms organize sets of iPods and iPads. Let’s start with my classroom. In the following video, I show how I organize my class set of iPod Touches for students to access and charge.
Here’s a link to my numbered iPod outlines document.
My team member, Ben Dalgas, uses a toolbox to organize and share his class set of iPod Touches. Each of the three drawers includes a power strip and six iPods.
Another similar method can be done with iPads using a plastic file box. Take a look at Justin Talmadge’s blog for more information on how this was done.
For larger sets of iPads, a cart can be used. See this post on the Canby (Oregon) School District Wiki.
Now you can purchase the PowerSync cart specifically designed for the iPad. How do you manage your iDevices?
