What is it? This stand for classroom iPads allows both landscape and portrait viewing as well as comfortable typing and interactive use.
How does it work? Just Mobile’s Encore Stand has a solid aluminum base ring and hinged arm. The arm adjusts to provide the perfect viewing angle for video; it also folds down for a rock-solid typing support. The Encore's rubberized arm and base keep iPads scratch-free and hold them firmly in place in both portrait and landscape modes.
How hard is it to use? Not very hard at all. The hinge is sturdy but easy to maneuver. Adjust the stand to the desired angle, then simply place the iPad in it.
How well does it work? Extremely well. The rubberized arm keeps the device in place without scratching it, and the base is slip resistant. Typing on the iPad while it’s in the Encore is easy. The arm holds the device in place, even with the pressure added by typing fingers.
How do I use it in the classroom? Great for video viewing, app use, or any iPad activity, the Encore provides the perfect home for the tablet.
