2.     Open AirParrot.

3.     Open the AirParrot interface and select your display, or specific application you would like to mirror. Then select your destination(s).

Squirrels School – Lesson #3: How to AirPlay with an iPad on iOS 8

Many iOS 8 users have been experiencing problems when attempting to AirPlay from their iPads. After opening the AirPlay menu and selecting a device to beam to, the “Mirroring” toggle is not always instantly displayed.  Sometimes, the destination device isn’t shown either.

If this is happening when attempting to AirPlay your iPad running iOS 8, we might have a solution.

  • Open the AirPlay menu.
  • Attempt to scroll down the AirPlay menu screen. While it may not look like look like the menu scrolls, it will reveal the “Mirroring” toggle or the device you would like to connect to.

Thank you, #FETC

#Teamsquirrels had an amazing experience at FETC 2015. Not only did we get to escape the Ohio snowstorms and take refuge in the Orlando sun, we spent the week talking with educators, tech coordinators and administrators from schools across the country. 

We received an incredible response to our 2.0 updates of both AirParrot and Reflector (coming soon!), and we’re anxious to build on all of the knowledge and feedback we picked up throughout the week. Thank you to FETC and all who attended for making this conference a huge success!

Check out some pictures from the event.
