Projecting From An iPad

Using the iPad as an instructional tool allows teachers mobility around the classroom and the flexibility of handing the device to students and allowing them to lead. Every EISD classroom has been equipped with an Apple TV to seamlessly mirror the teacher's iPad during instruction!

Before You Mirror

First you will want to do the following:

  1. Switch the source to Video/HMDI on the projector remote (or projector)
  2. Turn the Apple TV on using the Apple TV remote

Enabling AirPlay Mirroring

Tap AirPlay

Tap AirPlay and you should see available Apple TVs or other AirPlay devices such as AirServers.

Select Apple TV and Mirror

Tap the name of the Apple TV (usually by room number) that you wish to AirPlay to, then tap Mirroring. Once enabled, button will be green and your iPad screen will be mirrored on your Apple TV.
