Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
Wow! I downloaded the Splashtop app today on my classroom iPad. There is a free version, but it is very limited. The full version is $2.99. This app allows me to not only control my computer remotely but I am able to see my entire desktop on my iPad. I can use my iPad to see my desktop, use my regular web browser with Flash (!!) and all of my bookmarks. I can also open all of my documents. Because my laptop is connected to my Smart Board, I am also able to remotely control my Smart Board, open documents, type and/or write on the Smart Notebook Software. Set up was easy and the application finds my computer automatically. I clearly need to work on my eye-hand coordination skills but this app is a great find for my classroom!
