Are you looking for a wireless way to display your iPad through your overhead projector? I have been searching for a way to project my iPad for instructional purposes without having to use my dongle. The dongle kept me tied down to my overhead table.
Contact: Katie Neal, firstname.lastname@example.org , (336) 758-6141 Newswise — Winston-Salem, NC, Jan. 4, 2012 - While K-12 schools around the country search for funding to provide iPads to every student, an education researcher in North Carolina has found that even a single iPad can make a huge difference in the classroom. The results of her experience with student teachers at Wake Forest University appear in the December/January issue of Learning & Leading With Technology , the magazine of the International Society for Technology in Education. “Because they’re truly part of the digital generation, our pre-service teachers and the K-12 students they teach have a natural aptitude for tablet devices,” said Kristin Redington Bennett, an Assistant Professor of Education at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. Though iPads can cost more than $500 with 3G access and a budget for apps, Bennett said, “Don’t discount the device because of its price.
One of the common obstacles to using many Web 2.0 tools in elementary school and middle school classrooms is the registration requirement that those tools have. Fortunately, there are many good Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration. Nathan Hall has started to put together a Diigo list of Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration .
AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring add a lot of value to the second and third generation Apple TVs. Paired with a recent iPad or the iPhone 4S, an Apple TV can instantly become a gaming solution and a theater for home movies – and will be amazing when combined with Mountain Lion when it ships this summer. AirPlay also turns that Apple TV into powerful and extremely portable presentation system that’s a great fit for the classroom or the board room. The only challenge is that the Apple TV’s only output option is an HDMI port, which can be a big problem for connecting to older display technologies including many projectors and computer displays – a problem solved by cable and adapter maker Kanex. Kanex today announced its new ATV Pro adapter designed for the Apple TV. The adapter connects to the second/third generation Apple TV’s HDMI port and offers a standard VGA port and 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack.
The United States is finally getting around to building a memorial to Ike: Dwight D. Eisenhower, a Kansas lad who became one of our greatest heroes and most popular presidents. But there’s a problem. It’s the Kansas part, even though Eisenhower said, in a 1945 speech in his hometown after leading Allied forces to victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, “The proudest thing that I can say today is that I’m from Abilene.” According to the Eisenhower Memorial design, a statue of Ike as a Kansas country boy would appear somewhere in these trees.

The Artistifier is a site that sprung up recently in response to the popularity of the Oscar-winning silent black-and-white movie, The Artist. This tool allows teachers and students to take URLs for video footage on YouTube and convert it to very old looking film footage. The really neat part is that this easily allows users to add subtitles on the clip of footage. While was likely developed as a gimmick, it can be of great value in education to help students learn story telling and might make a great project for a multitude of courses.
