Since middle school students are bringing their own devices to class and the electronics may not be used the whole class period, use a mailbox system labeled with their desk numbers to allow them a safe place to store their electronics when not in use and reduces the temptation to play with them!
Organization pocket chart. Give students a pocket in the pocket chart and have them turn in all assignments here. If in alphabetical order, papers can easily be collected, graded, entered into grade book or placed in student mailboxes, while staying in order. Teacher can quickly and easily look at the chart to see who has or has not turned in work.
