As TUAW reports, Reflection is a brand new app that allows you to do something that many have been waiting a matter of years for – mirroring your iPhone or iPad’s screen on your Mac. Reflection lets you view your iPhone 4S or iPad 2′s screen in real time with no prior set up – just launch the app, select your Mac from your iOS device’s AirPlay menu, and you’re streaming. It’s an extremely fast and extremely simple solution. But why would anybody want to mirror their iOS device on their Mac? Mirroring also opens up plenty of new entertainment uses – you can stream your favorite HD iPad game (for instance, Infinity Blade II), and play it in high definition on your Mac’s display without having to use a television or an Apple TV. The app requires an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2, and you’ll need to be running OS X Lion in order to make everything work.

Reflection App for the Mac OS and the iOS device Reflector is a useful application that allows you to mirror your iPad 2 and newer or the iPhone 4s or the iPad Mini, to your desktop using AirPlay mirroring on either a Mac or a Windows machine. The application is installed on your desktop or laptop. The positive implications for the education field are huge!!! First, as one that often creates screencasts to help people learn a process, the ability to mirror my iPad screen onto my desktop, and then use Camtasia, Jing, or Captivate to capture the process is huge for me! Here is a quick, no audio screencast I recently made using Reflector and a screencasting tool. The more important bonus for the classroom setting is that the Mac computer (running Mac 10.6.8 or Windows XP or better) can be hooked up to the LCD projector or whiteboard projector the typical way (usually VGA or DVI). The work is all done on the iPad-- the desktop is just the "screen". If you have any more ideas for use of this app in the classroom.

Fluency on the iPad, like language fluency, does not necessarily come natural to most people. I see too many educators (administrators and teachers), who with an iPad at their disposal, are using the iPad: as a paper weight on their desk, leaving them in their car or forgeting the device at homefor playing games onlyto hand it over to their kids at home to play withas an after-thoughtas a “translation” tool (figuring out how to do something the same way they are used to doing on their desktops or laptops)and are frustrated that is does not come easy and natural to themand are not putting in the time (consistently) to become skilled to gain iPad literacy and fluency I view the iPad, not as a replacement for my laptop, but as a: I want to share my favorite apps that help me be a fluent (-ish) user of the iPad. 2. 3. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

10 common gestures easily misunderstood abroad Feature Photo : Striatic Photo: Marcusrg Frequent travelers must be great at charades. When you need to communicate and you don’t have the luxury of a shared language, body language is invaluable. A skilled traveler can negotiate a taxi, buy food in a market, and get directions from a stranger through hand motions alone. Things can get lost in translation, though, when a typical gesture from your country means something completely different in other parts of the world. 1. In 1992, George Bush visited Australia and, from the window of his limousine, held up his index and middle fingers in the “V” shape, a la Winston Churchill. 2. Photo: Alan Light We use this gesture in North America to say “stop,” or, if you’re a child of the Jerry Springer era, “talk to the hand.” 3. This gesture of agreement or approval is an easy reflex when language barriers are at play. 4. Curling your index finger to say “come here” is a no-no in many Asian countries. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
