Classroom Products, LLC
Tablet Carrel
Made for student privacy and hardware protection, the Tablet Carrel is a 30-degree angled, corrugated cardboard stand that creates a tablet workspace for students. It’s small enough to put on a student desk, but large enough for all brands of tablets. The Tablet Carrel holds the tablet in place, discouraging students from picking up the carrel, holding it and possibly dropping the unit. Its angled platform also promotes better posture when viewing a tablet.
