How do you store and charge your classroom laptops or chrome books? We are all getting a set for our classrooms this year and wondering what the best way to store them would be. I don't have a lot of room for a big cart.

Carts are so much nicer than putting something together. Cords are contained and hidden.

We got some cases from IKEA to use that we found the idea on Pinterest. It didnít work out that well and wasted a bit of money on those.

Iíve had three laptop carts over the years. The one I had in 2005 was HUGE. The one I have now isnít all that large at all. Itís not much bigger than my 36Ē 3 shelf bookshelves.

Our school is getting 1:1 apple devices, and every room is getting a cart. The carts are the same size as the Chrome book carts they had before. (About 2x2 and 3.5 feet tall) You might want to start figuring out how you will rearrange your space.

Carts are definitely the most practical way to go.

If you canít get a cart, I have seen using a dish drain. I suppose it would depend upon how many you have. A cart needs only one plug. The dish drain requires some sort of adaptive charging unit.

I had a cart and it worked well. Computers were numbered and returned to the correct slot so it was easy to know which one was missing--or in use. And all computers could be recharged with one outlet.

We could easily more the cart to another part of the room if we needed/wanted to rearrange things.

I think a cart is the easiest and most reliable method of handling a class set of laptops, chromebooks, etc.

Ditto on the carts. I've had chromebooks in carts for years and it worked nicely and chromebooks stayed charged.
