Which Adapter Do I Need to Mirror My iPad?

You can use an adapter and a cable to mirror exactly what's on your iPad's
display onto a projector or television screen. When picking out an
adapter, you need to know if your device has a Lightning or 30-pin Dock
connector. You also need to know if your projector has HDMI or VGA input.
Use this flowchart to help you choose from among the four possible
adapters.

Here's What Some Teens Are Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram To Share Pictures In Class - Business Insider

Here's What Some Teens Are Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram To Share Pictures In Class - Business Insider | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"I went home last week and did everything one normally does over the holidays: I got together with my family and, in the spirit of Christmas, grilled my teenage cousins about what apps they're using on their iPhones.

 

They named two of the usual suspects, Snapchat and Instagram. They laughed in my face when I asked what they thought about Facebook. "It's for moms," one explained to me. 

 

Insightful, but not out of the ordinary. Then my 13-year-old cousin asked me if I knew what AirDrop was."

This is something that educators need to know about.  I tried it at home with my phone and it is very very easy.  Great tool if you are out with family and friends.  I like that you can limit to people in your contacts list.

Mrs. Barnett's First Grade Class: Read to Self on the iPads - Scholastic Books

Mrs. Barnett's First Grade Class: Read to Self on the iPads - Scholastic Books | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
One way we use our iPads during Daily Five time is to Listen to Reading. We do this with a variety of apps, but I love trying to also use the "native" apps and what I already have in my classroom. Combine old CD's from Scholastic with books read aloud on them with the music app and you have a 2.0 version of a listening center!

Like many teachers, I had stacks of CD's that we no longer used because of our iPads. In fact, I am not sure that all of my students would even know how to use a CD player! I held on to the CD's because they had great audio of books being read aloud on them. I thought and thought and finally figured out how to import them to my students iPads
