Using Airtame in the classroom (Airtame reviews — Episode 2)


Hi everyone, in this video I’ll show you
how to set up the Airtime in a classroom, how to use it and what its advantages are
for teachers. Airtame Episode 2 The Airtame lets you wirelessly project your
laptop or iPad onto your whiteboard in front of the class. Setting up the Airtame is easy. I’ve already demonstrated that in my unboxing
video. There are two possible setups: either you
bring your Airtame with you, or, if the school buys Airtames for each classroom, it can be
installed directly into the projector or TV and you, as a teacher don’t need to setup
anything. To connect, just open your laptop, open the
Airtame menu and click on Start. It’s exactly the same procedure on Windows
… Ubuntu and Chromebook. On iOS devices you can just use the built-in
AirPlay function for simply mirroring the screen of your iOS device, but keep in mind
that it’s still in beta. Please read the link in the description for
important information about audio and video playback and the possible issues and limitations. On Android devices, you can’t mirror your
device right now, but you can share files to it. Check out the link in the description for
more information. Here are some situations where the Airtame
comes in handy in the classroom. Number 1: You’re possibly in this situation:
you bring your textbook or an iPad with a digital version of your textbook, a computer
to project the textbook for filling in or showing answers, and a pointer or mouse to
control that computer. Now, you can just use 1 device, which is your
iPad or your laptop. You can also use a stylus or Apple Pencil
to add something, like to mark a sentence, or to write something extra, and it appears
on the board while you’re writing on your iPad, or typing on your laptop. And because it’s digital, it’s immediately
saved, so that also means you no longer need to use whiteboard markers. Number 2: There are no more cables, which
means that you can just enter a classroom, open your laptop and connect, instead of looking
for the HDMI or VGA and audio cable that’s somewhere on the ground, plugging it in and
then maybe still having trouble mirroring your computer’s screen. The Airtame saves you from that little stress
when entering a busy classroom. And it saves you just a little bit more time. Number 3: If you don’t use an iPad, but
a laptop, then with the Airtame, you can place your laptop anywhere you like, on the left,
on the right or in the center of the class, where I’d personally prefer to be standing. You’re no longer tied to that corner where
the cables are. Number 4: Imagine you’re walking around
in class, checking students and giving feedback. Suddenly, you want to address something in
the textbook. You no longer need to walk back to your computer
just to show something, and then go back to the student you were talking to. you can just zoom in or turn to the right
page from where you’re standing. Number 5: you can customise the Airtame’s
homescreen. So if you’re not connected to it, because
you aren’t ready yet, or the Airtame stays on while the class is waiting for the next
teacher, the Airtame can project a custom homescreen, like a slideshow, a Google Presentation
you made for your class or a “To Do” list you made on Trello, or even an advanced dashboard
with lots of information. I’ll tell you more about customising the
homescreen in the next episode! If you have any questions,
