Technology deployments create new and challenging classroom management issues. One important challenge is how teachers control the distribution and return of iPads and tablets that have to be removed from carts, taken to student workstations and returned for storage, charging and protection.
Most carts create a management bottleneck, forcing teachers to supervise crowding in front of cart doors or distribute devices in groups, both of which eat away at precious teaching time. Students and teachers have to bend way down to take and replace devices and locking and unlocking these conventional carts is cumbersome.
Datamation Systems’ Gather’Round carts let students remove and replace iPads and tablets from all sides and even give teachers the option of pulling out lift-out trays for faster distribution of small, light devices. Some teachers have told us they can save five to ten minutes, which means more time for learning and less classroom chaos.
Gather’Round top-load carts are available in capacities of 24, 32 and 40. Tray heights are adjustable to accommodate a range of iPad and Chromebook model sizes and their cases. We also have a top-load models designed exclusively for 13” and 14” Chromebooks. iPad cart versions are available with charge-only and sync-charge capability.
