Moving Around the Classroom with Reflector Director

If there’s one thing educators know about Reflector 2, it’s that it allows students to truly be “mobile” with their iOS, Chromebook or Android devices. If students can be mobile, why do educators seem so restricted with their devices?

We wondered the same thing. That’s why we created Reflector Director – an iOS companion app that allows teachers to move about the classroom and interact with students all while still accessing the controls of Reflector 2 from their iPad or iPhone. Goodbye to the days of teachers being chained to their desk, and hello to the new era of teacher mobility.

Reflector Director gives educators the ability to:

  • Show and hide student devices without disconnecting or reconnecting
  • Highlight one student device to spotlight important content
  • Eliminate distractions with full-screen mode
  • Change frames for optimum screen compatibility
  • Observe screen previews of each connected student device before displaying to a larger screen

Reflector Director

Let’s take a step back for a moment and ask ourselves, “why is it important for teachers to have mobility in the classroom?" All of these features mentioned above are useful, but what does that really do for the efficiency of a classroom?

Here are seven reasons why teacher mobility is important for efficiency in the classroom:

  1. Teacher mobility saves time by keeping teachers from running back and forth to their desks to control Reflector 2
  2. It’s easier to walk around and give students more one-on-one attention
  3. Teachers are able to guide and educate students on the usage of technology to prepare them for real-world environments
  4. The teacher becomes the encourager, advisor and coach of classroom technology
  5. The overall efficiency and flow of the classroom improves
  6. Teachers stay engaged with students throughout the lesson plan
  7. Technology barriers between teachers and students are removed

Reflector Director In Use

With educators being called upon to find beneficial ways to incorporate technology into their classroom, they need to find solutions that empower them and give them confidence. Keeping up with the change in EdTech can leave a teacher overwhelmed and discouraged, therefore leaving the teacher unable to influence students in the best ways. Reflector Director was designed to allow teachers to feel confident using their classroom technology by making collaborative learning via mobile devices easy.

Teachers play an essential role in every student’s education, behavior and development. In the EdTech world, it can be difficult to manage a mobile classroom by concentrating on every student. With the help of powerful remote-display-management apps, like Reflector Director, this is made easy, and each student gets the attention they need.

Check out Reflector Director for yourself. We’re sure you’ll be impressed, and want to make it part of your everyday classroom routine.

Squirrels Debuts Reflector Director

We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our latest development in screen-mirroring technology. Reflector Director, a companion app to Reflector 2, is a brand new, first-of-its-kind technology that allows Mac and PC users to remotely control their displays.

Picture this: With Reflector, you’re using an iPad or iPhone to command a presentation in the boardroom, deliver a lesson plan in the classroom or show vacation photos in the family living room. Your audience is captivated watching the big screen as you dictate what they see directly from your mobile device.

This display of technical know-how and Reflector screen mirroring technology is impressive. That is, until it’s time to mirror a different mobile device simultaneously.

Your time-crunched coworkers, eager students or impatient relatives grow increasingly distracted as you hurry back to your computer to manage the screen while another peer, student or family member connects their mobile device as well. Momentum halted. Audience lost. Game over.

We created Reflector Director to fix that awkward transition because nobody likes awkward moments. We cringe just thinking about it.

Reflector Director helps you keep an engaged audience…engaged. You can preview and manage mirrored devices directly from your own mobile device with Reflector Director.  It allows you to immediately show the classroom what a specific student is working on or the rest of the boardroom that interesting graphic your coworker has on his tablet from the iPad or iPhone you’re holding in your hand. All without missing a beat.

A good presentation thrives on preparation, confidence and audience engagement.    Reflector Director makes audience participation and collaborative learning via mobile devices seamless. Device management has never been easier, and your audience has quite literally never been more connected.

Reflector Director features include the ability to:

  • Show and hide devices without disconnecting/reconnecting
  • Highlight one device to spotlight important content
  • Eliminate distractions with full screen mode
  • Change frames for optimum screen compatibility
  • Observe screen previews of each connected device before displaying to a larger screen

Reflector Director is a tool with the ability to change the way people learn and collaborate. Its value in education, business and home entertainment makes it a breakthrough in screen mirroring technology.

Check out Reflector Director for yourself. We hope you love it as much as we do. Visit www.reflectordirector.com for more information!
