Stage: Interactive Whiteboard and Document Camera Stage: Interactive Whiteboard and Document Camera, by Belkin can bring lessons to life when used as a mobile visualiser to display what’s on the iPad screen, and stream straight to the interactive board at the front of the class. Through a wired connection using an iPad to VGA adaptor, or using wireless mirroring software such as AirServer or Reflection on a PC/ Mac, teachers could show anything on-screen including a students piece of work using the camera feature through Stage. Stage also comes with interactive whiteboard features to sketch, take notes, add and create labels, all of which can be added over live video. This makes highlighting key points clearer with a variety of pen sizes and colours to highlight different points. There’s also the option to insert images from the iPad photo library or to use the iPad as a plain whiteboard with a white or black background. Summary Related Suggestions:

What can you do with an iPad in the classroom? | dedwards.me It’s a tool, it’s a tool, it’s a tool. The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students. Indeed the cost-benefit analysis for an establishment must take into account a host of factors when considering iPad use in the classroom. Assessment for Learning The most valuable weapon in an educators arsenal is feedback. Applications such as eclicker, Socrative and Nearpod have the ability to provide instant feedback for every child in the classroom. Collaboration Setting a collaborative task is a tried and tested technique to allow students to question each other in the pursuit of an answer. Every educator has been left with completed work and no easy means to ensure the student has a copy to refer to in the future. The point is an educator can now set tasks to enhance learning, safe in the knowledge the students have the tools to complete what is required.
