Encourage your students to write down their device number in the front of their journals.
Q: Help! I have too many devices to plug in, how do I get my students to assist me?
A: Be a time watcher, 5-10 minutes (depending on the age of your students) BEFORE the class ends, have them begin to put the devices away ONE table at a time. This will give students enough time to get the devices in the correct place.
Q: I want to use technology, but my students are always off task. How can I prevent them from wandering away from the lesson?
