    There are assorted remote-control apps available, several of which use a VNC server installed on the computer connected to the IWB to make your iPad act as a large mousepad-type input device for the IWB. Handy as the teacher can keep separate stuff (pupil details, class lists, etc) open on the iPad as well as using it to control the projected screen.

    You can also use an Apple TV - the feature you are looking for is called AirPlay Mirroring, which allows you to mirror the display of the iPad on to a screen connected to the Apple TV. It seems to work well, although I don't know how you go about managing a whole school full of Apple TVs or how much bandwidth they use. I'm also not sure about security - AirPlay is an extension of the RTSP protocol as used in CCTV and similar systems, but I don't know if it includes some kind of encryption. A version of AirPlay is currently supported by XBMC, which seemingly runs on the Raspberry Pi, so you could connect a Raspberry Pi up to a projector and use it to display stuff from your iPad. I don't think XBMC supports full display mirroring yet, though, I think you can show, say, a YouTube video, although full mirroring might be a future feature.

    I understand Smart are bringing out an iPad version of their Notebook software at some point soon. You'd hope that would have full two-way integration between the Smart board and the iPad, so the Smart board would act as an outsized iPad (the latest Smart boards support multi-touch, although I'm not sure how many simultanious points).

    Well you don't need Doceri, but it may add something to the experience?

    Depends which model the 400 series is few simultaneous touches than the 800 series

    As for iPads on the projectors, I know of a local school using Apple TVs for the job and reporting good things with them and simple to use which must be a bonus!

    This Kanex adapter looks good. There was an article on TUAW yesterday regarding using it in classrooms.

    Don't know when it will be available but this looks interesting:

    Dream Chip : xBounds

    In the demos it's seen connecting an android phone but the sending device could be ios or a laptop that has the relevant s/w on it.

    With AirServer:

    AirServer - The game console for Mac/PC has arrived

    Mirroring your iPad's display now works on Windows (Vista/7) as well as Mac OS X. I've just installed AirServer on my home PC and am suitibly impressed - it was around £5 for my single copy, but they do also do bulk licenses 25 at a time for £50 or so and the installer seems to come as a proper MSI and everything. It's at version 0.9 right at the moment as AirPlay sound is still being worked on. It'd probably be a good idea to check up on the RTSP / AirPlay protocol's bandwidth usage before installing around the whole school, mind.

    Just been playing with Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPhone & iPod for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store and so far, I am really impressed. Projector on a standard non-IWB with IWB tools installed on the PC
