Apple TV’s, paired with the iPad, offer the opportunity for the students to interact with the lesson collectively, and to share these interactions in real time with each other.  Apple TV provides the teacher the ability to airplay the content on their iPad to the classroom display and provides a natural platform for open discussion.
