    Chromecast in Ed.

    Hi all,

    So I was just banging on about Chromecast on my blog, and lamenting the fact that it's not available in my country (Australia), then it occurred to me that there might be some US Edugeeks who're keen on the device for classroom use.

    Firstly, are other people interested in the Chromecast for education use? Secondly, do any of our stateside friends on here have an order in for one? I'd love it if you could let us know what it's like!

    Dammit, I did a search for similar threads before I posted this but it came up with nothing (now I look, I think I used the wrong search box, my bad).

    So anyway, I'd still love to hear from people in the US or UK that get one.

    If an admin wants to merge this into the other thread for neatness, please go ahead.

    Just bought one on ebay and getting it shipped to India. I work as a Science teacher here. I'm hoping that by the time the camel gets here with my package that there will be plenty of apps out there to use it in my lessons. I plan on plugging it to the overhead projector and using my android tablet...I just need an app that allows me to slide what is on my screen over to the projector, such as an soundmeter app with oscilloscope and other fun science apps I use.

    Since starting this thread, I've got one for myself. It really is one of the easiest things to use. Casting from a Chrome tab or a mobile app is as simple as you'd imagine. If I had HDMI compatible projectors I think I'd fit them all out with something like this.
