 Everything I know about rolling out a 1:1 iPad initiative.

Post 4: Carts

 I cannot tell you how important it is to order carts ahead of time! We ordered these carts:

Bretford PowerSync Cart for iPad 2

Simultaneous charge, sync, and security for up to 30 iPad devices.

Designed for organizations managing iPad devices, the PowerSync Cart for iPad 2 allows you to store, transport, charge, and sync up to 30 iPad devices at a time.

  • Charge, sync, secure, and transport up to 30 iPad devices
  • Courtesy outlet perfect for accompanying MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, or AirPort Base Station
  • Ships fully assembled, including 30-pin dock connector cables

We didn’t have space to store them in a storage room, so we distributed them to classrooms (empty) so teachers could get used to having them.

We then tried out several “cases” and made sure iPads inside cases would fit into the carts! A post about cases will be coming up soon in this series!

Refer to the original post for all posts in this series.  The posts will be active links when they are available.

    We also have these carts but didn’t equate large cases with not fitting :)

    We ended up taking out every other white insert and they fit just fine. Thankfully it is working out better than we could have hoped!
