7 Point Ops Devices

Posted by Matthew Bentley on Oct 11, 2018 10:42 am

Good morning everyone,

We are about to implement 7 Point Ops at our student center. We are looking at different devices and cases/holders for these devices. If you are using 7 Point Ops (or anything like it) what devices are you currently using for your student workers?

Hi Matt - we have an ipad that our event staff use with a keyboard case from Amazon which has been working well. They can use their phones as well. No issues for us.

Matt, I can't recall what specific case we bought for our iPad ( got it from Amazon) but I do know it's a heavy duty material.  Almost as important is that over the years that we have used iPads for student managers is that when I but new case for it, I make sure that the case comes in a very bright, almost obnoxious color.  That way, it's harder for them to put it down and not remember to pick it up as opposed to a black case.  I've used neon pink as an example and currently use very bright lime green.  

We started using 7 ops this fall and the students really like it.

We are waiting to get 7 Point Ops.  I will be so glad when we have it.  We already have 2 spare iPad Minis so we will put those to use at first.  We have black Otter Box cases currently but I see the need for the brighter case because students will be placing it down fairly often as they are going from room to room.
