There have been several times that I have been in meetings that I want to share something on my phone to the TV or record a tutorial for an Android app easily. One of my favorite applications now allows you to cast your PC, Android, Chrome, or IOS screen to your Mac, PC, or even your Xbox one! Let’s check it out.
I have had a lot of users come to me because the IOS 7 update caused issues with not all of their Google Calendars not showing up on their mobile devices. If for some reason no calendars or contacts are showing then you should delete your account and re-add.
To get started on your mobile device head to https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect
You will have a list of your available calendars. Simply select the calendars that you want on your mobile device.
Close the calendar app.
Re-open the calendar and refresh the app by dragging down on the screen. It will take a few minutes for all of the calendars to show up.
As always let me know if you need anything!
There has been many times when a tool comes out and the only documentation on the subject is found on blogposts and Youtube videos. This is a great way to learn but sometimes its best to have a nice concise go to resource that will help step through everything with you. The book Instant Apple iBooks is just that. (more…)
This month is Autism awareness month. Kindergarten.com is giving away all of their updated apps for free. You can view the apps on your computer here or on your mobile device search the appstore for Kindergarten.com.
@llacrosse and I have been racking our brains on how to connect the Apple TV to the projector. Last year we used Apple’s HDMI to DVI cable but that did not provide sound. We also tried using some of the airplaying software that I have covered in the passed but it was very buggy. Last weekend she DM’d me with a possible solution and I am happy to report that it works pretty solid in the classroom.
Previously I did a post as well as a video introducing the Apple Configurator. Today we are going to walkthrough setting up the devices for the first time in a cart situation in which you do not have to activate all of the individual devices. You can think of this like “imaging” the devices.
