AirPlay Mirroring with Reflection Part II

I got to use Reflection yesterday in a training for the first time. Wow, what a difference! In case you missed yesterday's post, this app will change how you teach with your iPad. It was so simple to download, but you have to carry a PayPal account to purchase.

Anyway, it is so much easier to walk teachers through apps. Just like teaching in a real classroom, it gives you the flexibility to be with the learners instead of tied to your cable. You can be so much more efficient when you are able to instruct while looking over shoulders to see how they are progressing. You have to check it out! Well worth the money.

And did I mention earlier that you can have multiple devices mirrored at the same time!

I showed off Reflection today when working with some junior high teachers. Just as teachers do, they immediately started thinking of classroom applications. One had a great idea to put multiple iPads on the screen in order to quickly compare work. And because all it takes is a push of a button, it would be so simple to have students quickly mirror their device, show off what they are working on, and then log off to give someone else a turn. What a powerful way to display student work!

That's it for this week. Enjoy your weekend!
