Keeping your iPads safe and secure is key. They represent a significant dollar investment and should be handled the same way as a classroom set of laptops. Many different storage solutions exist, though the best ones typically involve:
The Brettford Mobility Cart is a sound option. Not only does it meet the above criteria, but it can also house MacBooks as well.
- Security - The ability to lock all of the iPads.
- Mobility - Unless there is 100% certainty that the iPads will not be leaving a given area, the ability to quickly and easily transport the iPads is critical.
- Power Source - Some way to simultaneously charge all of the devices at once.
- Sync - Syncing all of the iPads at once is the most efficient way to transfer content. Without this, you'll most likely induce a migraine.
While a cart may protect the iPads when collected together, it's a good idea (if it can be afforded) to protect the individual iPads. Individual cases may collect germs, but they increase the longevity of the iPad exponentially. A rubber silicone skin
can also prevent it from sliding off a desk and crashing onto the floor.
