So, I guess we were a little spoiled in one aspect at the elementary level. We all had iPads. But like with all technology when you have 1 iPad and classroom of 15-24 kids it's like "what do I do with 1 iPad." Well, now that I am working with high school teachers at a non-Title I school, I have quickly realized that 1) not all teachers have an iPad to work with and 2) teachers who are lucky enough to have an iPad have no idea what to do with them either.
I did some hunting around yesterday and today and tried out some products. So far, Mirroring360 is my fav! It allows your iPad to be mirrored onto your computer and ultimately onto an interactive whiteboard. If you are familiar with the ActivSlates its just like that but better! So now teachers you don't have to be standing in front of your interactive whiteboard in order to write on it--YAY! And now you can pass the iPad around the room or in small groups and get the students in on the fun-YAY!
I highly recommend you check it out!
Hi! My name is Allison Barton, a former elementary school teacher turned Technology Integration Specialist at Greenville High School in Greenville, South Carolina. I have been teaching for 11 years and have relied on technology during that time to excite, engage, and educate my students (both young and old). I also enjoy very much sharing my knowledge about technology with other teachers.
