Ways to Show Your iPad on a Projector Screen

Teachers really want to the ability to display their iPad or their students' iPads on a projector screen. Projecting on a large screen is great for demonstrations, simulations, explanations, and showing examples. There are several ways this can be done in the classroom. 

1. VGA or HDMI Cable
Reliable (works without network) but have to stay in one place, no audio on VGA direct. 
Price: $79

If you don't mind keeping your iPad in one spot, then a VGA or HDMI adapter (for the Lightning connector) should work for you. No audio on VGA though (most projectors).

What is AIRPLAY...?
If you want to wirelessly transmit your device's screen and audio so that you or your students can walk around the room, then it gets more complicated. You'll tap into Apple's 
AirPlay feature that is built into all iPad 2s and newer, including iPad mini. AirPlay works over Wi-Fi and requires all devices using it to be on the same network.

2. Apple TV
Verdict: Easy to use, move around, includes audio. Can have connection issues. 
Price: $157-$257 depending on hdmi projector
Apple TV is a small black box that can connect to a projector. iPad can mirror wirelessly to Apple TV using AirPlay. Apple TV only outputs HDMI. Your projector might not have HDMI input. If that's the case, you'll need an HDMI to VGA adapter like the Kanex ATVPRO.

3. AirServer
Verdict: Requires existing computer, cheap and effective
Price: $5 
If you already have a computer connected to your projector, you can use software to turn that Mac or Windows PC into an AirPlay receiver. AirServer is software that runs on your computer and allows devices to mirror iPad to the computer screen. Since the computer is connected to a projector, then the iPad shows on the projector. More about AirServer.
