Utilize a class webpage as home base for your students. Post everything that the students may need in and out of your class. This includes notes, videos, activities, and homework. This will not only encourage the use of the device, but will also save you a lot of time at the copier in the faculty lounge!
I found a class webpage to be a great way to communicate what was going on in my classroom with parents as well. You can add notifications for upcoming assessments, give reminders about upcoming events, or even request supplies. My students especially loved when I uploaded their work and photographs from lab activities.
If your school does not have a set webpage, try creating a Google Site or webpage with WordPress.
