Turn Your iPad into a Wireless Slate

So today in Pre-Algebra, we discovered something pretty awesome.  Splashtop is an app that turns your iPad into a wireless slate.

It’s super easy and just a bit less expensive than a $439 Airliner Slate!

  1. You buy the app – on sale right now for $6.99. (Regular price is $19.99).
  2. Install it on your computer as well.
  3. Create an account.
  4. (We also had to buy an “Anywhere Access Pack” for $10/year but that might depend on your network.)

It’s that easy!

After testing it out in the math classroom, I went back and installed it on my classroom computer and iPad at lunch.

Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow 1st period. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  1. I use Doceri, which is free and allows you to control your teacher workstation from your iPad. It’s a free app that you install on the main computer and the iPad. Connecting them is a piece of cake!

    1. Now you tell me!! Haha 😉

  2. I have an iPad 1? Will this work with that as well do you think?

    1. Yep!! I have an iPad 1 and it works! I didn’t get to try it out in class today….my lessons didn’t have any need for the SMARTBoard since we did station work. It’s on the To Do list for tomorrow!
