Keeping iPads Secure in the Library
High School Setting: Due to the increased activity in a high school library setting, it is a recommended practice that librarians develop uniform procedures to ensure the security of the iPads. From our VITAL grant cohort, the following recommendations are given:

  • Collect student IDs at the time of distributing iPads. Place each student ID in the cart slot associated with that ID.
  • Assign students to specific seats while using their iPads or identify a particular table cluster for iPad use
  • Use a sign-in sheet that is organized by iPad color and/or number
