A Revolution in Education
There are two quick ways to get started with it today that I know of. One option, is if you are commercial customer with a Bridgiit Server. You can use Bridgit to view, join and interact with conferences.
The other is to buy any third-party software that allows your iPad 2 to control your PC. Examples of this are the TouchPad and of course VNC. You can use this to operate your PC through the tablet much like a simplified SMART Slate.
This would allow you to walk around the room and lecture, interacting with the PC from the iPad 1/2. You could even have students come up and interact with the board (but I would refrain from touching the iPad while they are writing, just to make sure you don't interrupt the writing).
I'm sure there are other ways too. But I use a PlayBook to do simliar at work and in meetings. Edit: The PlayBook and Android Tablets allows for Flash - which means you can use express.smarttech.com on them as well in most cases (allowing you to use Notebook files without a board).
Thank you. That helps.
I use the $3 app called Splashtop which allows me to control my computer which connects to a SMART Board using Wireless Internet. This way I can do flash and SMART Notebook files on my Ipad while controlling my computer that is connected to my SMART Board.
If you already have a wireless slate and use that does this give any additional use or value?
I would just use your Wireless slate since that works better with the SMART Board as well as uses bluetooth instead of Wireless so it should be a faster response time.
Thank you. Will stay with the slate. Nice to know I am not way behind by not having the latest tech tools.
