Mirroring your iPad with AirServer

Mirroring (displaying) your iPad through your projector is huge. If you are in the classroom, you want to be to have this seemingly simple tool for instruction. Surprisingly enough, it's taken such a long time to get viable solutions for this indispensable teacher tool. Software that I wrote about last spring called Reflection was a nice solution. Unfortunately, it worked really well on Macs but not so great on PCs. Now we have another nice option.

AirServer is our recommendation for mirroring with a PC. You can download a free 7-day trial through their site at If you are interested in purchasing, there is a very reasonable $15 charge for 5 licenses. Now while the price is right, the installation is a bit of a pain. I wrote up some directions for installing and running AirServer on your PC. Essentially, there are three things you need to install to get it to work (at least in our district): AirServer, DirectX, and Bonjour. Follow the link below for instructions.
