Apple in Education Series (iPad and Apple TV integration)

For many educators and administrators the thought of switching to yet another new “device” or “thing” can be daunting. One such device is the iPad. It has been said that Apple dominates education and in many respects that is true. They have the most apps for education (quality apps) and their devices and equipment are designed to work seamlessly when set up correctly. The problem often times is how does one go about implementing the iPad into the educational environment?

I have had some experience in this department. I started from scratch. No devices, no wifi and built a program from the ground up. This is a series of articles written by me, about my experiences implementing iPads and what I have learned along the way. In no way do I consider myself an expert but I have definitely learned some dos and don’ts of iPad and Apple product implementation and I think it only appropriate to share my experiences so others can benefit.
