Reflector & Splashtop

Free Yourself from the Board!

Reflector

Reflector wirelessly receives and displays any devices that connect and mirror to it! This will allow the teacher to show content from the iPad as well as students using the airplay feature on their devices. In order for Reflector to work - BOTH the iPad and the computer must be on the same wireless network.


After installation is complete, it is a good idea to select your airplay name. Any computer that has Reflector open will show up as a choice on the wireless device. Students (and teachers) will look for your name so that they will mirror on the correct computer.


From the iPad, double click on the home button and swipe from left to right until you reach this screen.
