    Temp laptop system

    Hi all,

    At the School I work at we have a temp laptop scheme where we lend out laptops to students who donít have a laptop or need one for a lesson. The problem we are having is that the kids like to damage them and of course it is I who has to fix it!
    Do you have any systems which could help me out?

    Looking forward to your reply

    Do you log the names of the students that use them? Also I think a teacher has a certain responsibility to ensure laptops are treated well in a classroom (although I understand they cannot be everywhere at once).

    We will lend out a laptop and if it comes back damaged an automatic detention and letter home is sent. The pupil then looses any privilages to use a laptop for the rest of the term or year (depends on damage).

    Hi

    we sell a product called wasp inventory management you would need to scan the laptops as they go out with the students but this would keep a full history of what student had the laptop and who damaged it .

    alot of my schools i supply use this and then a letter is sent home as they can prove it was that particular student who damaged it

    hope this helps

    I seem to remember a student was caught damaging a computer here they were made to pay for the damage. It's quite a good deterrent. If you keep track of who borrows what and get your head/superiors to follow up with this when there are problems you'll find they stop doing it pretty quick I think.

    The vandals probably don't care because it makes no difference to them if the laptop gets damaged. If it costs them personally they will have a reason to care about it.
