My Academy is toying with whether or not to buy IPad's or Surface's for teaching staff next year. Possibly roll out 1:1 for students in the next academic year. For Months we were set on the IPads but then Microsoft released the new pricing so itís making us think. I personally love the Surface. I have one myself and use it every day at work. Having Office pre installed and a Windows OS is makes my life a lot easier. I did own an IPad beforehand but never used it practically for work. I mainly used it to play Star Wars Angry Birds and surf the web.
The question I have is; How would I connect the Surface to a projector in each classroom? Weíre undergoing a complete IT refurbishment and will be buying Smart Projectors in every classroom. Each classroom will also have a Standard desktop connected to the projector. At the moment all staff have laptops which they carry everywhere. Iím going to be ditching these completely though. Instead we were looking at IPads for the staff to use in the classroom as well as home use. Still got questions marks on them. Whether or not to use Diplay Note or such programs, or just use Apple TV. With the Surfaces though I donít have a clue where to start so any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks for that AngryTech.
Is there away to wirlessly connect it to a projector though? Sorry should have said that. The idea is that the teacher can walk around the classroom and use it interactively instead of sitting at the front of the classroom. Hence why I said I'd looked at Display Note for the Ipad?
