Using Classroom Furniture to Store those Controversial Laptops

classroomlaptopsLet’s just say the debate over students using laptops in the classroom is still a hot topic in every school from elementary to middle school to high school and even through college. Put yourself in the shoes of a college professor speaking to roughly 30 undergraduates: 15 of them are on a laptop and the other 15 are distracted by those among the first 15 who are searching Google, looking at status updates on Facebook, and on and on.

But put yourself in the shoes of an elementary school teacher who is finding that her students really respond quite well to the use of technology in the classroom. She realizes that they won’t always have their eyes on her if they’re working on a laptop, but at their age, she learns how to train them appropriately. Children will most certainly use a computer when they leave the classroom, so she reminds herself that this is simply a method of integrating education with technology.

The fact is, laptops aren’t going away. And quite often, the decision over whether students can have them is purely administrative. Which means that you, as an educator, have to consider the best way to manage such expensive equipment. One option is Mobile Laptop Storage Cabinet with sliding hardwood plywood doors in the front and back that provide easy access to the computers. Constucted of oak and oak veneers with a 1-1/4″ HP laminate top, the Storage Cabinet rolls easily on 4″ ball bearing, locking, swivel casters.
