How can schools ensure their K–12 students come to class with their devices ready for learning? We talked to two experts who shared their methods for keeping student devices safe and charged.
1. Use Multiple Channels to Share Reminders with Parents and Students
Schools should communicate regularly with parents and students about charging devices and remembering to bring them to school.
“I’ll remind students and parents every Sunday on our learning management system, on our Facebook page, through all our communication channels to bring their devices to school charged,” says David LaMaster, an assistant principal at Kanawha County (W.Va.) Schools. “It gets repetitive, but I’ve had parents thank me for doing it. And it pays off. It’s all about putting the percentages in your favor.”
