I was looking for a calculator organizer i could use in my classroom as a cellphone parking lot/charging station. This works perfectly. The kids put their phones in the pockets and plug them in during class. It has freed up my lab space and my kids aren't constantly checking their phones. It is the perfect length so it isn't dragging on the floor from the lab bench. I purchased it with a power strip :-) the kids are actually psyched to use it. I have a whole classroom full of calculators in it when class is in session
I am a high school teacher who learned this idea from a fellow teacher: Each student in every class has an assigned number. At the beginning of class, they place their phone in their slot. Some time during class, I check off on my cell phone sheet that they have detached from their phone this day. An accumulation of 80% (16 of 20) earns them a drop of their lowest grade. Not surprisingly, they are more focused and grades are less of the issue for class work when they are separated from their phones. Multiple issues that encompass a full article: what about theft, what about using phones for classwork (research eg), what about students who do not have a phone or who already have the maturity to leave it in their locker . . . You must fit this to your own classroom and other teachers have other ways to deal with it. I am finding that especially for younger high schoolers without the self-discipline, this teaches them that they can live without their phone for 90 minutes. A...
This was perfect! I needed a calculator holder for geometry class and this one is the one I was waiting for. The kids can put their IDs in the clear plastic pockets and grab a calculator. The pockets are exactly scientific calculator size. They'd hold TI-graphers too I think. All the other maths teachers have these disgusting, overly big, 'permanently-creased plastic pocket' holders that look plain trashy. This one is half the size of the others. A perfect fit for calculators. And guess what? In no way am I connected with the seller/manufacturer and I didn't get this free from them. This is just a high quality item that pleased me so much that I was compelled to take time out of my day and leave a review. Can we take back real reviews on Amazon? This is one of them. Get this.
