Tools like Google Classroom and Microsoft Class make it easy for teachers to develop and deliver online assignments and quizzes, grade assignments, and provide online feedback directly to students. But failing batteries make it difficult for students to use new digital resources. Without readily available charging stations, both students and teachers can fall behind on their lessons.
It’s a fact that the 2nd largest barrier to successful implementation of 1:1 or BYOD programs is charging, behind funding.
Students don’t carry battery packs and charging cables in their backpacks. Even if they did, most schools don’t have enough dedicated power outlets in classrooms, cafeterias, and libraries. Nor do they have a way to secure devices while charging, whether they are students’ personal or school issued devices.

Provide Power to Improve Learning Experiences
Mobile devices are changing the way K–12 schools and school districts approach education, not to mention how students themselves learn. With schools now connected through broadband networks and digital content and curricula becoming the norm, keeping students’ and teachers’ devices powered up is more than a convenience. It’s an expectation.
