I learned about Reflection at ISTE12 and was so amazed I just had to blog about it. Reflection is a new application that allows you to mirror your iPad or iPhone to your desktop using Airplay mirroring on either a Mac or on a Windows computer. The application is installed on your desktop computer or laptop.
There are so many positive applications to using this program in the classroom. I can’t wait to roll it out at the beginning of the year as I am showing my class how to use the iPad or specific applications on it. You can create a screencast to help students learn in the process, such as the ability to mirror my iPad onto the screen of the desktop. No more mirroring the iPad onto the using a video camera to record the process! The work is all done on the iPad– the desktop is just the “screen”. The app even sends the audio from the iPad to the Mac. Check it out today!
The price of the Reflection Mac App is $14.99 for use on one machine, $49.99 for a 5-pack, and, if you are interested in purchasing more than 20 copies, drop them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will work with you!
