As more iOS devices are being used in the classroom for student projects and teachers are using them to present content, the need to display the iPad screen on a projector has increased. Thus, the district has purchased a district license for Airserver for all Apple computers. Airserver is a nice replacement for an Apple TV in areas where a laptop is connected to a Display.
Airserver allows a iPad screen to be displayed on a laptop wirelessly which can the be projected on a screen for the entire class to see.
The software can be downloaded from: http://www.airserver.com/Download/Mac
Site Technology Specialists at each site have the activation code to use to install the software.
A couple of install suggestions:
- Turn off Launch at Start-up unless you use this every day
- Turn on a password or on-screen passcode to protect your laptop
