Last week, the Squirrels girls headed to Detroit to exhibit at the 2015 MACUL conference. Enthusiastic attendees were eager to learn about an upcoming Reflector 2 release and everything Squirrels has to offer.
Full of deep conversations and sessions, the annual MACUL conference is the event of the year for Michigan educators. Check out the MACUL15 hashtag on Twitter for a great recap of the event.
Also, a big congratulations goes out to our $500 Best Buy gift card winner: Violetta Kuzniar from Taylor International Academy!
Thank you #MACUL15 and every one who attended. Here are some pictures from the event!
Cluttered desktops are overwhelming and frustrating.When one screen isn’t enough, add AirParrot to create additional workspace. Increase your productivity and use multiple programs simultaneously by wirelessly extending your desktop from your Mac or PC! Here’s how:
How to Extend Your Desktop
You’ll need a copy of AirParrot installed and running. AirParrot is free to try for 7 days, and is a budget friendly purchase.
1. Open the AirParrot menu. Select “Extend Desktop” as your method of screen sharing. Then, choose your destination.
2. Your desktop should then show up on your television or monitor connected to your receiver.
3. Drag your applications to either screen as you please!
4. You can extend your desktop to Apple TV, Chromecast or Reflector, separately or at the same time. (Apple TV on the left, Chromecast on the right).
