A quick post here before Spring Break! I found out the exciting news this week that the iPad2 does indeed support mirroring through the VGA adaptor! This means that you do not have to find a projector that has HDMI – I know our school doesn’t have any!
I purchased that adaptor – it works great! I will be using it along with the capability to play audio files and showing the kids the music all at the same time in the next class. Now if I could just get a nice long cable to go to my podium instead of being 3 feet from the wall. Of course Apple simply needs to enable AirPlay to display even static apps, not just video and audio! Then whatever I am showing on my iPad I can use AirPlay and display it on the projector!
Do I really need a whiteboard now that I can do this? There are great possibilities with AirSketch along with the capabilities and possibilities of AirDisplay combined with either the actual SmartBoard software or something like Ink2Go. I’m really doubting the need for a SmartBoard.
