Reflector2 Makes a Teacher iPad or iPhone a Powerful Tool for Teaching

Reflector2 is a program that connects an IOS device to a computer through AIRPLAY. Anything you can pull up on an iPad or iPhone can then be projected on a screen for a whole class to see, interact with, discuss, and analyze. Apps, videos, on-line textbooks, digital formative assessments, and the camera feature can be projected in a large format.

Using the technology of iPads in a class setting supports the Digital Learning Platform as a Best Practices Technology and provides quick, in-the-classroom options for students to engage in Authentic Work and Products.
