Reflection App Brings iOS Device Mirroring to the Mac It’s not very often that I get extremely excited about an app. Then again, it’s not very often that an app like Reflection is ever released. 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.

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.

Using cel.ly in the classroom or other ways I am new to the idea of allowing kids to use cell phones in school. I agree with it 100% if the purpose is valid and I have an administrator who has also indicated it is a good idea if it is monitored and used effectively in the classroom, but the question remains- how can it be used effectively? I attended a webinar recently on the website simplek12 and I learned som ideas about using phones in class- one website mentioned was cel.ly. I immediately established an account and created a cell for my school library. I am going to use it in my class to do quick starts and exit slips. There are so many concerns regarding teachers and student connecting via text and social media. I am certain that I can use this program with success in my class. If you are in a district where technology is open and cell use is permitted, take a look at cel.ly.
