Teaching Large Classes with an iPad. [Reprinted by author from www.sageonstage.com] To this day I remain a big fan of the overhead projector.
I truly believe it was more effective a tool for teaching than the projected Powerpoint slides will ever be. I stood facing the students, watching their expressions, which I could see since the lights were sufficiently bright. I could draw on the screen and change directions as questions arose. In fact I will argue that the 'golden age of college teaching' if there was one was stimulated by the addition of the roller to the overhead projector. It's been downhill ever since,...until this semester. This semester I've purchased an iPad2 and a software application called SplashTop Remote Desktop. To reach this new level of teaching nirvana I have found at least two routes (so far): In both cases you could use the resulting system to present with KeyNote® but that would be so 90's.
