Un-boxing and Inventory
To organize and inventory our new MacBooks we used a label creator and a bar code scanner. All MacBooks have a school ID# that is displayed on three labels-- the backside of the laptop itself, the underside of the battery, and the powercord "brick." The ID is scanned into our FileMaker Pro Inventory database, along with the MacBook serial number, Airport ID, Ethernet ID, and student name. As we continue with student use, our hope is that our maintainance log coincides with our inventory database, providing thorough records on each MacBook's history and use. Our MacBooks are currently being stored like books on a bookshelf, in numerical order to ease our cataloging process.
