From Book to Board

Miss Massie is demonstrating how to take a picture of students work, using her iPad. Then displaying the work on the Interactive Whiteboard, so that she can now annotate and discuss the work with the rest of the class.

This is all achieved within a 5 second period, whereas traditionally by using a scanner, it would still be warming up before being in a position to use it.

Please note that it is not necessary to email the image to yourself as it is already stored on the iPad. However, this demonstrates how you would then send the image to the students iPads, so that they can see the image on their iPad.
