We need assistance with multiple staff using a classroom promethean board. Our resource teachers use the teacher’s classroom to teach. Often only the board is available to the resource teacher, the classroom teacher is using their desktop. We need a way that the resource teachers can use the boards with minimal downtime to connect to the board using either a ipad or laptop. Using the Mac to vga cords are not reliable. Is there a solution to this problem either with software or hardware? Please offer suggestions.
With regard to the question raised, it wouldn’t be possible to connect an ipad and use interactively with the ActivBoard.
You may be able to display using third party adapters to the projector however.
We would always recommend using a supported operating system and connecting using a VGA/HDMI (if available) and the USB cable.
They may be third party devices or connection boxes that may allow the switch of USB + VGA between computers/devices however if you did have issues using this we would only be available to advise on direct connections to avoid any issues with third party devices/cabling.
