iPad cases

                                                 Benton Community MS iPad Case

Our process for chosing cases included the following criteria:

1.        Durability – tough case (we’re working with middle school studentsJ)

2.       Corner protection

3.       Cover that puts the ipad in sleep mode when covering the screen

4.       Strap on back

5.       Stand to set iPad up on desk or table for typing

6.       Multiple colors for different grades

7.       ID holder for student ID (approximately 3.25 X 2.25”)

We didn't end up with our case meeting all of our criteria -- but we are satisified with our case, the Griffin Survivor.  We had over 100 free case samples sent to our school.  Students were a huge help in this process -- they would spend their study hall in my office researching cases and then we'd email the company and ask for free samples.   Companies were great about working with us and even giving us suggestions about other products that may meet our needs!  Below is a picture of some of the cases we tried out.  The box on my desk is full of iPad cases, as well as the one's spread out on my desk.  The Apple project manager that worked with us was very impressed when he saw this -- but Apple was not impressed enough to send me a FREE case:)
