K-12 Resource Center

For nearly 25 years, we've had the privilege of interacting with K-12 1:1 technology OEMs and other thought leaders. Also, by working hand in hand over the years with schools and students, we're proud to be an integral part of the education technology evolution.

We compiled this resource center from across the 1:1 implementation spectrum. These tools are free to use. By coaching and teaching each other, this center will continue to grow as a vital K-12 1:1 industry resource. If you have materials or nuggets of wisdom to share with the education community, please let us know!

“We were looking for a Chromebook case that would last us five years. A teacher from another district spoke highly of InfoCase, which intrigued me so I decided to check them out. In the fall of 2014 we gave out 600 of the Always-On case from InfoCase and we’ve gotten two and a half years of solid use out of them so far.

What impresses me the most is that InfoCase backs their product. Danielle, our sales rep, has no questions asked when I come to her with a problem. InfoCase takes care of us. Overall, we’ve been very, very happy with the case, and I will definitely be an advocate for InfoCase.”

We went to a 1:1 grades 7-12 which was 1,800 MacBook Air computers. I feel that the case we bought saved us at least 5% on LCD breaks. We had no damage because of a dropped computer.

InfoCase received the following email from the Computer Operations Manager at Daviess County Public Schools

“I got a call yesterday morning from a nice lady in Indiana that said her husband had found a laptop on I-64 around Exit 79. Upon inspection they figured out it belonged to Daviess County Schools so they called me. I got the information and made arrangements to pick it up the next morning. I then looked up the student's information and passed it to Brian since the laptop belonged to a DCHS student.

Later Brian explained that this laptop was in the overhead carrier on their school van. During a drive back from a golf tournament last weekend, the carrier came open and the laptop fell off the van AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. They went back as quickly as they could to look for the laptop but it was nowhere to be found. This must be where Mr. Laswell comes in, he's driving down I-64 headed home when he sees a big black bag in the road. He pulls over and finds our laptop. And, that's as they say, is the rest of the story. Laptop recovered, undamaged!”

“I think we gain some valuable lessons from this.

  • First, laptops don't go in carriers :-)
  • Second, Our laptops are incredibly well built.
  • Third, Our cases are worth the investment.
  • Fourth, There are still nice honest people in the world.”

"We purchased 200 of the InfoCase sleeve primarily because it reduces laptop compression when placed into student backpacks. This is a critical aspect for our student laptop program because we want the laptop to be one more tool they carry in their book bags. We've been very happy with this case and believe it has already prevented many potential breaks."

— Howard Levin, Director of Technology, The Urban School, San Francisco, CA

"Due to the ever increasing enrollment rate at Klein ISD, high damage rates incurred by our 1:1 laptop program can impose a tremendous and possibly insurmountable cost to the district. The InfoCase solution has been a great tool to help keep our machines out of the shop and with our students."

— Karen Fuller, Director of Technology, Klein ISD, Klein, TX

We have been using InfoCase cases and sleeves since 2007 and we haven’t found any computer protection that is as durable on the market.

Kids are rough and machines without cases look like they have gone through a war zone. Always-On cases keep our computers looking good and we have more retired machines going into our loaner pool than ever. Using sleeves and cases has nipped so many repairs in the bud; we started giving detentions to any student caught without their case on their computer.

"This year we have switched to the ClassMate case by InfoCase and have really been happy with it. This is one of the "Always-On" cases. The laptop always stays securely inside the case which gives the laptop added protection. Empty bags are no longer cluttering the classrooms and class time is saved since the girls don't have to unpack and repack their laptops. The cases are also very compact so the girls think the laptops seem smaller. At first the students thought they were really geeky but now prefer them for the above reasons."

"We have been loyal customers now for 5+ years because of the high quality of your product and the prompt professional service you offer. During those five years we have realized many benefits that come with an InfoCase designed product including laptop protection and peace of mind. We love them and we are firmly committed to your product!"

— Karen D., Harpeth Hall, Nashville, TN

"We were looking for a carrying case that would be more impact and pressure resistant than the model we had been using. The MacBook case had the durability that we were looking for, and InfoCase was very responsive in adding some additional design features we felt were essential (shoulder strap loops, full flap to keep the Pacific Northwest rain out, and a pocket for ID cards). Our rate of damage to screens and casing as a result of impact is noticeably lower than it was last year. The cases themselves are holding up quite well after 3 months, despite being crammed into backpacks and being opened and closed many times each day. We are pleased with our decision to go with the MacBook case."

— Jim Golubich, Director of Instructional Technology, Shoreline School District Shoreline, WA

"You hit a home run. Everyone loves the laptop cases. Thank you for getting them to us on time, and thanks also for the fantastic quality of the product."

— Chris Hamady, Technology Coordinator, Toledo Central Catholic High School, Toledo, OH

A successful laptop program depends on keeping laptops in the hands of students rather than in the repair shop. The InfoCase team listened to our repair history and provided a case that addressed our problems.
They continually responded to feedback and adjust their products to meet our needs.”

— Susan Smith, Daviess County Public Schools, Daviess County, KY

It would be hard to find a tougher environment for a laptop than a 1:1 school program. InfoCase solutions have been a key factor in protecting our laptops, thus keeping our damage costs low and our machines with our students for round the clock learning.”
