Convert Your Existing Printer into AirPrinter

All you need to do is to hook up the printer like you do on to your mac / pc. Then install the software listed below. The only setback for this solution is that you must have both ur mac/pc and the printer on and connected in the same wifi network.

Shared AirPrinter Software

1. Collobos FingerPrint– It works even on IOS5 devices. All it does, is to expose your printer as shared then make them visible to the iDevices. Provided both printer and your mac must be in the same wifi network. Works on both mac and windows. Although both sold separately. Follow instruction on the website to install and get it working.
2. Printopia - Same like the concept above, but only works on Mac. Follow instruction on the website to install and get it working.
3. AirPrint Activator – Same like above but free. Might require some tweaking and security settings. Follow instruction on the website to install and get it working.

And now you have airPrinters...Cheers!

For those trying to project their iPad, we use Apple TV ($99) to connect to the iPad wirelessly.  This can be connected to any projector with a HDMI will display everything on the iPad.

Hi Everyone. Just got 15 iPads at my school and am looking for suggestions as to how to organise them efficiently. How to charge them all at once, get the apps on them all at the same time, move them around the school. I recall reading some time ago about using a cart? How do you all manage your iPads?

Hi All, I'm a elearning technologies and founder of watch, learn and My ultimate goal is to bring mobility technology ( such as iPhone, iPad, Android ) to e-learning with the goal of making the learning experience more practical and portable! And I'm here to share with all of you some of my experience and expertise. ;)

Some of you may have seen it, but there is an ePub app called Book Creator that you can make your own ebooks and have students access for your iPad through iBooks. It's great, limited at the moment but getting there, have a look!

Does anyone have experience with student email accounts on iPod Touches and the google+ feature. I was able to set them up, but when they email me, the emails are visible on all student iPods. I'm wondering if there's a way around that? Thanks!

Thanks everyone. I find out more from you guys than in the Apple Store. I understand what you mean Mark, it's the touch that controls the iPad not a mouse as with laptops so I could project the iPad screen but the students wouldn't be able to interact with it unless they touched the iPad. Gotcha.

Veronica, as Kendall said, you should be able to hook an iPad 2 into a projector and it will display whatever you see on the iPad. You can hook up iPad 1's but it'll only show video I think, as opposed to every app.

Veronica, I don't think you can. So far I have had it connected to a flat screen television monitor via a toggle and we have connectivity in some common areas via Apple TV but I think the dream scenario of having a giant touchscreen iPad is a bit off on the distance. I think we would all love that, make us all feel like Tom Cruise in Minority Report.

You can connect it to a Smartboard with a VGA connection so I imagine that a projector would work ok.  Need to check which apps you can show though, the iPad 1 is limited, but the 2 works well with Smartboard.
