Mirroring the iPad with your own network: Kathy Schrock

Mirroring the iPad with your own network: Kathy Schrock | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

FIRST SOLUTION

  • The first was to create an ad-hoc or computer-to-computer network between the Mac desktop/laptop and the iPad. It is easy!
  • Simply go up to the WiFi symbol on the taskbar on the desktop or laptop.
  • Pick "Create Network" and you get the "Create a computer-to-computer" network box.
  • Give it a name, pick either channel 1, 2, or 11, and secure it with a password if you want to.
  • On the iPad, go to Settings:Wi-Fi and pick the ad-hoc network from the list to connect to it.


SECOND SOLUTION


While searching for an answer to my question, I also came across a reference on how to create an ad-hoc network using the new CloudFTP device, which also does many other things, too.


Note: Airport Express will also work.

How to choose an iPad Keyboard

How to choose an iPad Keyboard | School Leaders on iPads & Tablets | Scoop.it

I have been thinking of buying a keyboard for a long time now. I am fairly fast at typing on the iPad but there are still times that I would like to have a physical keyboard…to be able to feel the keys on my fingers.


Over the past year I have written half of my blog posts on my iPad using Blogsy and have grown very fond of QuickOffice Pro HD. For these apps a dedicated physical keyboard is much more efficient.
