5 Ways to Use Reflector 2 in Your Classroom

July 31, 2016
I’m very proud to be an Alpha Squirrel Ambassador and am a huge fan of Reflector 2. Reflector 2 lets you mirror the screen of one device onto another device. So if you’re in an iPad classroom you can mirror your device to the computer attached to your projector. Then everyone in your class can see what’s happening on their teacher’s screen – or the screen of another students.
If you’re looking to move about your room without having to hook up each device to a projector with wires, you’ll absolutely love the freedom Reflector 2 gives teachers and students.

Here are 5 ways you can use Reflector 2 in your classroom!

1. Mirror multiple devices at once so more than one screen is visible to the whole class
  • Gets the whole class engaged
  • Entire groups can present their work
  • Great for collaboration between students
2. Record device screens to capture workflow and model lessons
  • Works well with a flipped or blended learning environment
  • Record a single screen or all connected devices at once
3. Use cross platform devices
  • Works with all iOS, Android and Chrome OS devices, as well as both Mac and Windows computers
  • Great for a BYOD environment
4. Leverage security features
  • Helps keep classroom safe from interruptions and inappropriate material
  • Connect and hide, prompt to approve, password and an onscreen code
5. Save money
  • Reflector 2 is a more cost effective solution to any Apple TV, since Apple TVs only allow iOS connections and don’t allow multiple devices to connect at once

I love how Reflector 2 helps teacher model a task and highlight the fantastic work of other students. You’re sure to find lots of ways to use Reflector 2 in your classroom. Use the comments section below to share how you use this tool.
