[aisle] Tagging iPad Bricks and Cords

We are 1-to-1 with Chromebooks. The first year the district said we didn’t need to label the chargers but after collecting at the end of the year without names, many of our buildings have voluntarily done it the last few years.

Our students do take home the chargers.

We do not barcode the chargers (although if collection had not greatly improved I would have considered putting in the extra time). We simply label them with the student’s name.

At the end of each year we collect the cords and the sleeves (district issued and also labeled). We give each teacher a checklist. Students set out their 3 pieces on collection day and teachers let us know who is missing items. Students also complete a checklist to indicate any problems that need to be fixed over the summer and place that between the keyboard and the screen. We also give teachers a box to collect the cords and have it pre-labeled so we know which grade to redistribute to in the fall.

In the fall students are issued the same cord, sleeve, and Chromebook they had the previous year.

Good luck!

We have been 1:1 iPads for several years. Our students take home the brick and cord for charging each night. They keep the brick and cord over the summer and are responsible for them. We do collect the iPads from each student on the last day of school for updating, etc. to prepare them with the apps for the next school year.

Hope that this helps...

Our district recently went 1:1 with iPads and it has been a complete disaster as far as collecting cords and cables.

Instead of insisting that all chargers go home, the district gave the kids a choice (oh and did I mention none of it was barcoded or tagged in any way that it was school property) so the kids just took each other’s and now we are trying to collect them (LOL).
I know we are not the first school to roll out 1:1 with iPads. How does your school handle the brick and cord? Are both pieces tagged? Do they all go home? How do they charge them at school?

Thank you! We definitely need some work and since no one else is trying to solve this debacle, I am putting it on myself to solve :☺
