In most schools nowadays it’s not unusual to find laptops, tablets, Chromebooks and other devices as educational tools in the classroom as they deliver both an interactive and collaborative way for students to learn. However, as the popularity of using these mobile learning devices continues to grow, charging and storing multiple devices in a limited space becomes a clutter problem and a security risk.
