No one can deny that technology has made huge changes in education. It has made knowledge more accessible and interactive, and it has made many aspects of teaching easier. Schools are frequently fully embracing this by buying laptops and tablets for their schools. This can be a wonderful boom, but they don’t provide the most use to students without tablet & laptop storage carts. Here you will find out how to get the most out of these great carts.

Your GoToMeeting with an abroad client is starting in five minutes and you’re still trying to find a suitable area for everyone in your office to gather and participate.
You have divided your classroom into groups to work on a media rich project and the student desks just aren’t cooperating with everyone’s laptop needs.
You want to present your latest architectural designs to a client and their contractor and it’s just awkward with everyone huddled around your desktop computer.
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
Have you ever heard the expression, “A picture’s worth a thousand words”? The use of visual aids in the classroom will get your students attention a lot faster than just talking to them. Seeing a math problem worked through on an interactive whiteboard makes it easier to grasp the concept.
Fans of our Facebook page know that we appreciate the longevity that our school furniture selection offers our customers. Furniture that was built to last, does just that. Bretford is now giving away an incredible prize to those who have held onto those classic school furniture pieces of days gone by. They are asking for video submissions highlighting their old Bretford furniture products that are still in use. This should be easy, as it’s hard to walk into any school and not see a TV or projector perched on top of a Bretford cart.
For the last 60-plus years, Bretford has been making tables, carts, shelving and other furniture products for K-12 and higher education environments. Many of Bretford’s earliest models are still being used. Bretford’s “Oldest Product” video contest is open to all educators, business professionals and facilities managers that either use or select furniture products in a school or training facility. Entrants must provide proof of employment. Entrants may submit their “Oldest Product” videos between June 7, 2010 and July 31, 2010. The grand prize winner will be selected on August 16, 2010.
So what’s the prize? You guessed it, more Bretford classroom furniture! A whole room’s worth to be exact. One facility will receive a full room of Bretford furniture to accommodate 30 students/professionals, just in time for the 2010/2011 school year. The grand prize package will consist of:
- 15 – Connections Tables (3524-GMQ)
- 1 – Teacher’s Workstation (UCS880-GM)
- 1 – PAL Cart (TCPUL23FFDS-GM)
