I have been provided an Android tablet to play with for the next few weeks. My goal is to find a way to use it to remote to the classroom desktop and, thereby, control what appears on the SmartBoard. I have come across of many different apps to do this but I am not sure which of the 50 or so that are out there I should go with. Do you know of or has anyone provided the names of any apps to you that address this issue?
The idea of completely controlling the content on the board from anywhere in the room by anyone in the classroom is giving me goosebumps... Talk about built-in student engagement!!!
Check these out.
I just purchased an iPad with the intention of using it in the classroom. I was a bit hesitant at first because I am not that acquainted with this new technology, however, the students were so excited. They have become the teacher, and I am the student eager to learn. I have installed several apps for the students. Here are a few. I hope it helps.http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shakespeare/id285035416?mt=8
