Putnam City Schools Designs Charging Station with LocknCharge

August 17, 2017 — MADISON, Wis. (Aug. 17, 2017) – To help refresh their digital learning initiatives, leaders at Putnam City Schools in Oklahoma collaborated with LocknCharge to design and release the Putnam 16 Charging Station. The school district will install 500 charging stations for the 2017-18 school year. “Our district is in the process of creating our own digital curriculum, so students will increasingly use mobile devices as their textbooks. We didn’t find any stations that fit our needs for this initiative, so we approached LocknCharge about creating a custom solution,” said Charri Stratton, director of instructional technology at Putnam City Schools. “We wanted a charging station that didn’t take up classroom space and allowed teachers to look and easily see if all the iPads were put away and charging. LocknCharge provided that.” The Putnam 16 Charging Station charges, stores and secures 16 iPads. The pre-wired station comes with an external charging status display and a built-in mechanical combination lock. The school district plans on putting 400 stations in their middle schools and 100 in various classrooms that have a 1:1 program.
