It’s no secret that many teachers use an iPad Pro in their classrooms to manage their day to day tasks. It’s also no secret that if you want to keep your iPad Pro in great condition. But what are the best iPad cases for teachers for 2018?
Teachers use iPads in the classroom for a variety of reasons. From presenting lessons to students to creating video resources, teachers use a multitude of apps on their iPads to meet the needs of their students and, as such, need a case that offers the flexibility of use and features that can make life easier for teachers.
It’s not just about having a case that will keep an iPad safe if it’s dropped, it’s about having a case that makes it easy for teachers to carry an iPad around the classroom, set up for possible display usage, and keep the iPad safe in case students use the teacher’s iPad for any number of reasons.
As a matter of fact, sometimes the teacher iPad is the only device available in the room and sees a ton of use. While Chromebooks are becoming more popular as the choice of classroom device, iPads are still quite popular and keeping them safe, secure, and functional is a concern of not only teachers but those wonderful folks in the district IT department.
We love those folks, don’t we?
So, what’s the best iPad Pro case for teachers? Here are my choices from the current crop, many of which are available on Amazon.
Best iPad Cases for Teachers 2018 – Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case Cover
Snugg has been making great iPad cases for years and this one is no exception. I know many teachers use their iPad as a primary device and they need a keyboard to do that. With the iPad Pro, you’re basically packing around a full-power laptop computer with the best touchscreen around so why not use it as a primary device?
Having a keyboard is a great feature that can unlock more of the iPad’s potential. With this case from Snugg, you get a fantastic case plus a great Bluetooth keyboard that has great battery life.
The case allows you to rotate the iPad around 360-degrees so you can use it as a tablet or as a laptop replacement easily. The hinge is reinforced with aluminum, providing much longer life than a basic polycarbonate hinge. The corners are impact resistant just in case your favorite 4th grader has a case of the dropsies.
Best iPad Cases for Teachers 2018 – Ztotop Premium Leather Business Slim Folding Stand Folio Cover
As a matter of fact, it’s the case that’s on my iPad Pro right now. I’m not a fan of cases that make my iPad bulky. I’m fairly careful with my tech and have never had any incidents with drops (knock on fake wood) in all the time I’ve owned an iPad.
This case is great because it does offer some protection but keeps the iPad profile slim. Add a pen/stylus holder on the side along with an elastic strap to keep it closed and the awesome goes up two levels. Add another elastic strap that helps you hold the iPad in one hand while you walk around the room and BOOM! you’ve reached a whole new plateau of awesome.
A variety of colors is available to meet the needs of any taste. It’s a great case and the price is great for any teacher on any budget. This case is available for the iPad Mini, the iPad, or the iPad Pro (12.9-inch and 10.5-inch versions).
Best iPad Cases for Teachers 2018 – Logitech iPad Pro 12.9 Keyboard Case
Logitech has been making keyboards for as long as I can remember. The quality of their devices is pretty much unparalleled. I have a Logitech keyboard sitting at my desk right now. Add a great case for your iPad with a great keyboard and you get this model.
Logitech offers a variety of keyboard cases for every iPad. You can still pick up one for older models as well if you’re still packing one around (I’m sure many of you are and you are rock stars for making older tech work for you!)
This model for the iPad Pro offers a backlit keyboard which is something I never thought I’d need but OH MY GOSH comes in handy so often. You don’t even have to be in the dark for the backlight to be useful. Even in lowlight conditions, having those keys illuminated is a wonderful bonus.
Granted, for the Logitech name and quality, you will pay a premium. But in the long run, if you need a keyboard to partner with your iPad this model or one of its many cousins is worth it.
Best iPad Cases for Teachers 2018 – New Trent Gladius
Check out that strap on the back. It rotates a full 360-degrees to make holding your iPad super easy. The hard shell exterior is surrounded by rubber and the Gladius includes a built-in screen protector. Under the strap, there’s a metal arm that serves as a stand.
If you’re accident prone or your students use your iPad often, this may be just the case you need.
