One of the simplest solutions for managing multiple devices within the classroom is to use a charging trolley. Storage and charging trolleys can store, charge, and even update devices such as laptops, Chromebooks, and tablets in volume, whilst supporting sustainability.

In the rapidly evolving education landscape, access to technology has become synonymous with learning opportunities. Providing learning devices to students is not just beneficial but essential for fostering digital literacy and participation in modern educational activities.

One cost-effective solution facilitating education technology is the utilisation of charging trolleys. These units offer a practical means to store, charge, and even update devices in volume. By centralising device management, Charging Trolleys save valuable time, space, and financial resources, all while increasing security measures.

This approach is particularly valuable within the classroom where students need quick access a fully charged device. Rather than the teacher hand out the devices to each student or have a dedicated IT suite, students can simply head to the trolley and collect a device. When devices are ready to be returned, they can plug back into the trolley, ready for the next student.

Whilst this saves valuable teaching time, choosing the option to have the trolley networked so that IT technicians can update up to thirty-two devices remotely is a real time and cost saving.
