Anyone using ipads in the classroom? What are you doing with them?
Have you had success with the VGA connector and projecting onto a big screen? I can't seem to get the connection working so that I can share my ipad screen via the projector. Thanks for any ideas!
I was told by the main Tech Guy at ELMO, that a sheet of laminating film can be used as an anti-glare sheet. Laminating film has a smooth and a frosted side. Simply split a sheet in half and you will have two anti-glare sheets. Frosted side up, of course. I have not tried it, but if you can snitch one, give it a try.
PS: a 6x8 sheet of "anti-glare" film costs about $5.00 each....a lot of money for a sheet of plastic.
The VGA connector wont project the main screen for you iPad, it will only show certain things. I know it works with Keynote, bring up a Keynote file and "play" it and you will see it projected. I also believe it works with some video files.
Thank you for this feedback Sean! I thought I could show apps and demo these on the big screen, but apparently not.
Trust me, you arent the only one that wishes this was possible. I usually take screenshots to give students a quick tour of the app(s) they are working with that day.
