    •  Chromebook Cart Management Tips-
      • Label devices with number and cart
      • Assign a number to each laptop
      • Have the Chromebook number be the student's seat or ID#
      • Charge every night
      • Set-up start pages
      • Teach the students to use the "waffle" icon
      • Use a Google Calendar for cart sign-out
      • Use student "tech" leaders to return to the cart for their group -- also to assist their group in technical assistance -- but teach them to provide verbal assistance to their team rather than doing it for them.
      • Always have a sponge activity (keyboarding practice!) while the class is getting set up or finishing for the day.
What else can we share in the success of using carts?
