iPad + Apple TV vs Interactive Whiteboard
I have been looking into viability of using an iPad mirrored to a projector via Apple TV instead of the standard use of either a interactive projector or Promethean/Smart whiteboard solution. We are currently going though a new build and will be having a new AV system in every classroom. So I am looking into every option to see what would be right for our school.
Has anyone tried this setup or looking to try this setup themselves or have a tottally different idea of an AV setup?
There are some obvious advantages such as cost, being able to move around the class while teaching and handing pupils the iPad to work on rather than trying to get pupils to come to the front of the class on a whiteboard along with the wealth of apps available. Obviously there are some disadvantages aswell such as not having access to software such as activ inspire and other windows based software and the management from an I.T. point of view may be difficult.
What are other peoples thoughts about this? are Interactive whiteboards a thing of the past or is it their use and training the issue that needs to be looked at?
