When all of the new iPad Carts (each with 10 iPads) arrived at the schools they came without cases. Each school had the option to purchase cases. Sometimes the decision to purchase cases does not just rest solely on desire. Is there money in the budget for cases? Where does the money come from?
Some schools have opted not to purchase cases so far. As someone who uses the iPads at every school I must say it is a bit nerve-racking to have students using these naked iPads. So I ask that students not to leave their seats with the iPads and that the devices remain flat on their desk to avoid mishaps. Thus far there have been deep scratches on three separate naked devices - yikes!
Cases need not be as expensive as the ones shown above. The older cart at that school has cases that aren't as flashy (the ones above rotate to rest in portrait and landscape position) but work wonderfully. The older cases were closer to the $10-$20 range and are slimmer in profile so they are a bit easier to fit into the iPad cart.
I'd love to know what cases your school is using. Comment below!
