Pilots give districts insight into the benefits their students and staff will realize in a mobile device deployment. Often, this insight is critical in securing and allocating any funding needed for mass deployments.

At TCEA 2015, James Symons, K-12 mobile device management specialist and CEO of LocknCharge, shared answers to questions about how and why K-12 schools should roll out mobile devices together with storage and charging products.
