Anyways, I was lucky enough for Christmas to get an iPad2 from Santa :) I had written a grant to get some in my classroom and didn't receive it :( but now I have ONE! Needless to say, 24 students can't share 1 iPad. SO, this is where the help comes in. I asked the computer man (notice not "tech guy") how I can connect my iPad to my projector to show the AWESOME apps made for education! He tells me to download the airdisplay app for $10. He's the computer man, so he should know right? RIGHT? WRONG!! All AirDisplay does is allow me to use my iPad as a 2nd monitor....meaning I'm only seeing what I would normally see on my laptop. AND he doesn't even have that working correctly....I only get a blank blue screen on my iPad. :(
SO...I took this into my own hands and did a bit of research. I googled how to connect iPad to Smart Board, and basically I can use my smart board just as a screen to show my apps (not interactively) but I need to get an adapter. Does anyone know if my iPad will still be wireless at this point? I think it said a VGA Adapter. I don't want to run a cord all over my classroom.
Any help you guys have with how to use iPads in the classroom would be GREAT!! THANK YOU!!
Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start! My
