    Recently I downloaded the trial for Doceri. I like it, a lot, but it doesn't do everything I want.

    I want to be able to use apps on I-pad and display them onto my Smartboard. Will Chromecast do this, and if so, relatively painlessly? I'm thinking I want to create I-pad mini lessons on Educreations, and then play them onto the smartboard while I circulate and help students. Sort of cloning myself. :D Maybe there is a better way?

    I believe there is an app called Reflector that allows you to display what is on your IPAD on your SMARTBOARD. I believe it is somewhere around $15 and a bit less if ordering in bulk.

    YA...I think that may be what I am looking for. Right now I show kids an app and they're all trying to squeeze in to see it on the I-pad. Hopefully reflector will resolve this issue too. :thanks:

    Chromecast can only mirror webpages from the Chrome Browser - it won't do anything with an Ipad app.

    AppleTV, however, to my knowledge, can mirror an Ipad using Airplay. I'm an Android/Google user though so I'm just going on what I've been told by Apple Fans who tell me my Chromecast is garbage.

    Chromecast is actually pretty good - but not for the purposes that the TC wants.

    Try out splashtop - maybe install it on your home desktop computer and have your iPad connect to your home wifi, see how it works.

    I would suggest using an the solution of an app, so you aren't tethered to anything.
