The iPad is becoming a more powerful tool everyday. Recently, I found a YouTube video talking about how to build your own PVC iPad holder essentially turning your iPad into a document camera.
I sent these directions to our awesome industrial tech teacher and a mere $7.00 and 15 minutes later we had our very own stand. I found however that I wasn't a big fan of having to take the iPad out of the case and sliding it into the pvc pipe. So we created the model below. In our version the iPad just sits on the pipe, it might not be quite as secure but it is much easier.
I use this with the app Stage, which is free on iTunes. This app allows you to write and label your image much as a SMART board would do. It is a very basic app but very powerful!
I hope you find this helpful! Do you have any other innovative iPad solutions that you would like to share? I would LOVE to hear them!
