Gunnar Sewell's curator insight, January 25, 7:56 AM

While tablets such as the iPad can be a very useful tool for teachers and for student engagement, it is my strong belief that they should never replace or reduce interpersonal activities. Educators must always remember that the push to use technology in the classroom is mainly the result of high tech companies' marketing campaigns. 

Susan Berkowitz's curator insight, January 25, 6:31 PM

teachers often underestimate or underuse the power of the iPad

Terry Doherty's curator insight, January 27, 5:45 PM

Interesting perspective ... will engaging kids in elementary school translate to the stronger writing we expect of students.

Cool - can't underestimate the need for "101" type guides for educators.

Stefan Gisler's comment, October 23, 2013 3:46 PM
Apple TV is great. Unfortunately there's only a optical audio output so I have to use analog - digital audio converter to connecting to a PA or Hi-Fi. Airport Express looks like a nice solution for this but it is very unstable and has a big latency. So the only solution for me at moment is WHDI (wireless HDMI-Connection to the beamer).
