Screen sharing and Smart boards
Giving students control over the class by allowing them to manipulate the presentation, can be a daunting enterprise. There is so much left up to chance. Handing over the presentation to a student, however, can promote engagement in the classroom.
Doceri is a suite of products that turns your iPad into a remote control so that you or your students can, in real time, manipulate the presenter’s screen in the classroom from anywhere in the room. This would offer you the opportunity to have students demo a search, for example. Doceri also acts as an interactive whiteboard and allows you to annotate documents and web pages with hand drawn graphics. Since Doceri is an advanced tool for the classroom, consider observing another instructor who has used this successfully. Doceri is a free app which will work with any instructor station that MCS had loaded the software onto.
