Apple TV in the Classroom. Apple TV in the Classroom « PeorBust. For the last 6 months I have been trialling the use of an iPad in school.
I have tried as much as possible to do everything on the iPad from producing presentations, editing and uploading movies, emailing and browsing, video analysis, score keeping and even my registers. But the biggest change to my teaching was the introduction of an ATV unit into my classroom. This little black box took no time to install and hooked into the school network easily.
