Best Practices for Managing Mobile Labs

Assign Computers

  • Lost work may be saved!

  • Teachers should make an effort to assign computer numbers to students for each project or for the school year.

Class Jobs

  • Each teacher can assign a “Tech Helper” who is in charge of plugging in computers, wrapping cords, double checking that each laptop is in the assigned spot, collecting headphones, checking the printer tray for paper, etc.

Please also remember to plug in the cart when you return it to the media center or another classroom so it can charge overnight!
