Got iPads? Get a WiPad!

If you are an innovative educator whose school has moved to iPads in the classroom, you need a WiPad. Unlike Apple TV it does not require network connections or IDs. Unlike an interactive whiteboard you can get up and away from the board and into class. Just snap your iPad into the WiPad case, attach the battery to the back of the case, and connect that to WiPad and iPad with a cable. Place the receiver on your TV or projector and voilĂ ! You’re ready to share whatever is on your iPad (i.e. apps, audio, video) with the class.  

What’s nice about the wireless device is that not only can the teacher be anywhere in the class, but the projecting iPad can also be given to a student to share their work as well. Or...you can just connect the WiPad to a student device.  

Unlike an interactive whiteboard that requires training, keeps you tethered to the front of the room, and costs thousands, consider a WiPad Pro. It works on an iPad 2 or 3 and runs for $299.

  1. Not sure how they think $299 is EDU pricing :)

    1. Innovative Educators don't think about money. Innovative Educators pull funds out of thin air. Innovative Educators make it work.

    2. $299 is a heck of a lot cheaper than the $2000 - $3000 interactive whiteboards that many schools seem to have no problem shelling out.

    3. I have successfully used Reflection.app as a much cheaper alternative. It is only $14.99 and works via AirPlay in iOS. You can use it from a Mac or PC on an iPad 2,3 or iPhone4s. http://reflectionapp.com/

  2. In the first sentence, thought you might want to change "your" to "you're" and at the end change "wah-la!" to "voila!"

    1. Spelling and grammar is part of 19th Century industrial-model schooling. It is not innovative. Innovative Educators use innovative spelling and grammar.
