have no fear… there are other ways around it!
In the current school I work at I do not have an interactive whiteboard in my room.
Having just invested in an iPod I came across an app called Air Display which allows you to control your computer remotely from your mobile device, trialling this by using one of the school’s iPads I then invested in an iPad myself.
I now successfully run my lessons with my laptop attached to a data projector and pass my iPad around the class for the students to interact with the screen. The students love this and I feel it is just as interactive as if I had an IWB. In fact I like it better as my students remain seated and I take the iPad to them.
below is a handout I wrote for my Interactive Music Room presentation at MTEC in Melbourne in April.
Teach to transform!
