Untethered iPad Projection

Is it true? Is there an easy way to project your iPad onto the screen without being tethered to a VGA cable?

Yes!  If your projector is connected to a Mac.  Most of us have a Mac in the classroom; if you do, here's how:

Connect your Mac to your projector.

On your Mac, install and open the $14.99 app "Reflection" from reflectionapp.com (see your Tech Director).

On your iPad, select AirPlay and choose that Mac computer (it will show up in your options.)

Watch this video to see how:


Wowser!

If you are in charge of creating professional development technology videos, you can also use SnagIt (Windows and Mac) to record a screencast of the iPad process, which is how I created this video.

Now, if you use your iPad to share with your students, you now have a way to do so without being tethered to your iPad through the VGA cable!

What do you think?
