For as long as I can remember it seems like we have never had enough electrical outlets in the right place in school buildings. Design standards and construction budgets are generally conservative when it comes to the number of outlets per classroom and the level of infrastructure required to support them. Teachers and can get creative with extension cords and power strips sometimes attracting attention from the fire inspector. And now we have “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) which among other things means at some point each device has to be plugged in to recharge. Older school buildings were not designed to accommodate this type of demand and at this point we may not truly understand how to build new schools to accommodate the number of devices that need to be plugged in during the school day. I am interested in how school districts are dealing with this?
