AirServer - Compare to AppleTV | Ed Tech Stuff | Scoop.it

AirServer for Mac/PC compared to Apple TV.  If you don't have AppleTV in your classroom, you may want to try AirServer for MAC/PC.  Some of our teachers have starting using Airserver ($14.99) and feel it is an excellent alternative to AppleTV.  Students can even jump on Airserver to mirror their iPads and share work with the class.

Pain and Remedies of Sharing iPads in Schools

Pain and Remedies of Sharing iPads in Schools | Ed Tech Stuff | Scoop.it

There is no end to the uses of the iPad in education. I’ve discussed that ad nauseum on this blog. As a learning tool, it has the potential to make a great positive change to learning. The only problem is Apple designed it for individual use. Schools are designed for ( or budgeted for) shared use. Conventional wisdom is for iPad use to occur in a 1:1 or BYOD Environment. In the best case scenario, I wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately, financial realities will often dictate that sharing is the only viable option if we want our students to enjoy the benefits of the iPad. It can be done effectively – I’ve shared my thoughts early in the year about the pros and cons of shared iPads – but doesn’t happen without some time consuming workarounds. What follows is my take on the pains (and remedies) of sharing iPads in a rather large Primary (elementary) school.

Great Uses of QR Codes in the Classroom

Great Uses of QR Codes in the Classroom | Ed Tech Stuff | Scoop.it

"What is a QR code? It's short for "Quick Response" and is usually a square.   What do you do with a QR code?  When you see one, you can use your  smartphone or any mobile device with a camera, QR code reader app and  internet access to scan the square. Once you scan it, the  code will take your device to the web-based location set up by the code  creator.  You need to know though that they are two kinds of QR codes.  Dynamic QR codes let you change or update the URL linked to it without creating a new QR code.  Static QR codes are linked to a fixed URL that cannot be changed."

Karen E Smith's curator insight, October 25, 2014 8:57 AM

Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:28 AM

I really appreciate the early childhood apps. I'm gonna recommend them to my students' parents

Many of the schools that have introduced iPads in the classroom also use the Google Apps for Education suite. Unfortunately these two do not always mix well together. Using Google Apps on the iPads has always been quite tedious, but today Google updated its Google Drive app that solves many of the problems.
