The Apple TV really is most beneficial if you have iTunes, an iOS device, or are a Mac based school.
If you do not have an HDMI capable device in your classroom, consider purchasing this device to convert the signal to VGA so you can output from the Apple TV to any screen that has a VGA input.
If your IT person is not interested in telling you the password, see if they will set it up for you. Considering mirroring works iOS wide, you can share just about anything you do on your iPad with your class. The freedom the Apple TV gives you to engage with students around the classroom (since you’re not tethered to a cable) is invaluable. Jeff Herb is an Educator, Blogger, and Podcaster focusing on Instructional Technology and finding ways to innovate the classroom using technology. The common question I get for larger scale deployments is how you stop users from controlling other Apple TV devices.
I have been toying with an idea of allowing the students to take a photo with iPod’s that I have for the classroom, of their notes (or anything they would like to save) through an app that scans documents using a photo taken by the device. Great ideas but your in violation of Itunes terms of use by streaming purchased movies to a projector. My first suggestion would be to make sure that the software on the iPads and the software on the AppleTV are up to date. My second idea is that the network you’re operating on is actively closing the port that AirPlay uses when it notices constant use for a certain duration of time.
If either one of those don’t solve the problem, come on back and we will keep brainstorming. These switches will also split the Digital audio back out the Analog so you can plug the sound into a traditional stereo system.
It seems that the default setting when Apple TV kicks is to show the latest, hottest movies.
I have found that Apple TVs can complicate the mirroring process because it does not like to work with advanced wifi networks.
Mirroring functionality for any device platform would be so incredibly beneficial, and what is lacking is the need for the teacher or presenter to (on the fly) be able to control who is mirroring. Really great comment, and I appreciate you weighing in – definitely learned some new stuff!
C) You will have to secure the Apple TV because any student can be in a hallway and potentially take over the Apple TV. I am in IT for schools and have repeatedly talked to Apple directly about all aspects of Apple in education. I feel so silly asking this question but I have an ipad 2 and an iphone 4s (both up-to-date on software) and when I doubleclick the home button and scroll over to where the airplay icon should be (like in your picture above) I don’t have that.
I wanted to use apple tv but my school district says that the wifi signal is not compatible. Try and get more details on why it wouldn’t work with your Wifi at the building and post back with more info.
Determine what you will be connecting it to – and that will determine how you will set it up.


The majority of projectors and interactive whiteboards have this type of connection, making this accessory a great little product. Obtain the wireless key from your IT coordinator and simply enter that when prompted when you first plug in your Apple TV. Each person I talk to has a different use for their Apple TV, but the general method of use is pretty much the same.
That’s it – your iPad should now be showing on the screen connected to your Apple TV! If you don’t have an interactive whiteboard, but you do happen to have an iPad, this is a really cheap way to enable whiteboard functionality (with so much more, in my opinion). For those who rely on technology in the classroom but also love moving throughout the room, this is the device you needed yesterday. Getting it is really the first step – understanding how you will use it daily comes with trial and error. The teachers I support frequently comment that some of their students think its fun to mirror their iPhones in the middle of a lesson to interrupt them. You can actually set a password on the Apple TV to only allow approved devices to connect (as long as they know the password). I may be in touch with you soon to write this up into an article – I’m sure people would love to get details as to how you accomplish this! I think I understand your issue being with iTunes and not copyright law, which is not affected by what I am discussing in the article. In 99% of the situations, teachers are legally hooking up their Apple TV to an HDMI enabled projector and streaming content that is OK for use under Fair Use copyright law.
There have been some updates to the AirPlay portion of iOS to address some of the drop out issues you are talking about.
You can plug it in wherever the cables end (likely at the front of the room) or you can plug it in and leave the ATV on top of the projector.
Currently this doesn’t exist, but there are some companies working on it and it should be released by Q2. We have seen many times before where firmware has restricted specific devices from working with iOS devices and this seems entirely possible – depending on agreements reached with companies such as Netflix. You can actually pair your ATV with your iOS device (using the Remote app), even if you lost the Apple remote. By using vlans you can now split your network into separate networks like Student, Teacher, Guest. Could a wireless network cause a connectivity problem with ipad 2 projecting with vga (to digital projector)? If you are in a new wifi location and trying to play a movie on ipad 2 with the video app via vga to projector, could the ipad’s attempts to connect with the unrecognized wifi interfere with the output of the movie?
If your classroom has an HDMI enabled device (HDTV or a projector with HDMI input) you are good to go, setup will be a breeze. Also, note that the accessory has an audio out port, preserving the audio from the HDMI cable, something that many devices like this do not do well (or at all).
If the ATV has been setup before, just navigate to Settings -> Network and enter the setup for a new wireless network.


If you have a Mac, you can quickly create an AdHoc network to which you can connect your iPad and your Apple TV. I will take you through some of the logistical methods of use that will then let you apply your own needs of use to the ATV easily.
This is great for the classroom as sharing Apps and tutorials via the iPad are becoming more popular.
This has been reviewed and judged upon in several cases and does not pose a threat to teachers wanting to use content in their classroom.
If you find that all your software is up to date, talk with your IT coordinator and ask them to make sure TCP ports 7000, 47000, 7100, 49228, 50259 and UDP 62572, 54780 are open. With the second option, remember that the ATV needs its own power source, so an available outlet would be needed if you plan on setting it on top of the projector. Especially since HDMI projectors have come so far down in price, it is not out of the realm of possibility to replace the projector and perhaps re-allocate the old projector to a room that doesn’t need advanced functionality. The team was attending a tournament to present their movie at a neighboring district (hour away). And, in some of the more advanced classrooms, you may find an Apple TV serving as a media hub for a teacher (and possibly students) with an iPad.
Mind the fact that you will no longer be connected to the internet, but many of the uses don’t require an active connection. Connect this to a 4×2 matrix HDMI switch then you can plug your apple tv and you can connect the teacher laptop also. Seems bizarre that it will come and go – can you successfully mirror your screen on the iPad to the Projector without trouble?
The issue was that our WiFi authenticates using Active Directory – the ATV cannot do this. An independent media company owned by MIT, it produces publications read by millions of business leaders, innovators, and thought leaders around the globe, in six languages and on a variety of platforms. I know that we have been able to cycle through more than 5 students on the Apple TV in a class period. They created a hidden wifi network that didn’t require the advanced credentials and they connected up perfectly. Using the Apple TV in the shops and labs allow the instructor to use the camera on the iPad or iPhone to show the students on the screen something that in essence they were unable to do effectively prior. So, i guess I’m grasping for something within the room that could have tripped up the ipad.
Also, their practice room at our school does not have a wifi signal because it’s in an extra classroom in an isolated area.
