I have tried to write this story for several months but the image that I was uploading was too small. I finally figured out how to upload a larger image and am happy to finally write my than you!

My students were so excited when I told them that our wish had been granted. They looked up iPad Padpillows online and anxiously awaited the arrival. When the Padpillows arrived we opened the package as if it were Christmas morning! My students LOVE it! It not only helps with secure holding of the iPad, but for many of my students with disabilities, their arms no longer tire trying to hold the iPad and use it at the same time. We actually have to have a classroom sign-out sheet for the Pillowpad to make sure everyone gets a fair chance to use it.

We are a grateful class! Thanks so much!

This has been the most perfect gift to assist two students of mine. They have motor issues and find it better to type rather than writing. So much of their work can now be digital using my iPad, and the Bluetooth keyboard has been a lifesaver. On behalf of my students, thank you for support their learning and education. Nothing can stop them from going the extra mile and reaching their full potential!

I wished for the the Typi Folio Case + Wireless Keyboard & HDMI to VGA Converter as a give-away at a technology workshop I taught. The Typic Folio Case + Wireless Keyboard & HDMI to VGA Converter was given away at the technology workshop, The 1-iPad Classroom, on Thursday, February 19th to Mary Kompalli, a special education teacher at Heyward-Gibbes MS in Columbia, SC. She is currently using her own iPad in her classroom, and was very excited to win, as her folio case did not have a keyboard. She plans to use the Typi Folio Case + Wireless Keyboard & HDMI to VGA Converter with her students to type reports/papers, to use with apps that include a writing component, and to take notes at faculty and IEP meetings. Attached is a picture of Mrs. Kompalli and her students who were so excited about the opportunities they have with this prize!

The Ziggi Document Camera has helped me record videos as I flip my classroom's content. I am able to easily record art demonstrations and import it to my computer for editing. I really enjoy the fact that it I can switch between the software and other programs. It's easy to store and move -- so I can share my camera with other teachers or complete those lengthier demos at home.

We now have a class set of PadPillow for iPads. What a huge help! No more rushing to get one of the few we had. Students no longer have to hunch over their iPad to work on it. It has also made using iPads on the rug much safer. I truly appreciate the ergonomics of this product and so does my class. Otherwise you wouldn't see them in use. Instead, when iPads are out so are the PadPillows. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to use your products in my classroom. My special needs students use the wireless keyboard with the IPad to complete writing activities, the smaller keyboard allows them to type easily. I will also use the converter to view videos of the students I have taken on the IPad. At awards day, they love to see themselves recieve their awards. They are so proud!

One of the better Bluetooth keyboard cases I have come across! The stand is nice and sturdy and the keyboard is comfortable to use. It's been very helpful with the many email and notes I need to do. I have not had a chance to use the HDMI to VGA converter yet but am glad to have it handy for the day that it will be used!

This wonderful gift was waiting for our class when we returned from Christmas break! It was easy to install and we were able to get started right away. We also love the magnetic screen. Thank you so much for making our classroom more interactive. The kids love to come up to the board and write on the screen. With the shrinking budgets in public education, there are very few people with this type of technology in our building. We are so grateful to IPEVO for supporting education and getting these great tools into the hands of our students. We love using the whiteboard system and magnetic screen to encourage more student involvement and responsibility for learning. Thanks again, IPEVO!

Thank you so much for the IPEVO iPad pillows! My students love them. It is safe to say that these are the single most well-used item in our classroom. The students use them all day. They use the pillows to hold their iPads but they also like to use them to hold books when they read. We appreciate the support that IPEVO gives to our schools. We are fortunate to benefit from your generosity. Thank you!

We have had so much fun with this new piece of technology. I even brought our superintendent in to see how well it works. We can now use our document camera to project work on the screen and our interactive whiteboard system to write on that work. Students are up out of their seats, eager to participate in whatever we're doing because they love this technology. Thank you for helping bring our classroom into the 21st century.

I need it because...
We currently communicate with a school in Spain as part of our foreign Language learning. At present children have to take turns to use the computer mic to talk to each other. This doesn't make a conversation flow very well and allow more than one person being involved. With the conference station we will be able to work more efficiently and have a more fluid experience. This will improve our learning and the experience. The whole group will feel involved in the conversation and this will stop children getting bored or distracted.

The VX-1 Internet Conference Station would be an asset to taking down our classroom walls! In our class we strive to make connections outside of our room. In Kindergarten we have started researching. I tell students that you can information from books, the internet, experiences, AND from experts. We have gathered tons of information from "experts" around the world via Google Hangout and other video conferencing applications. If we had the conference station our experience would be greatly improved.
In fact, during our plant unit we attempted to connect with high school students who were starting a green house and the sound quality was very poor. (http://youtu.be/fxSmMlxIpJA
The VX-1 Internet Conference Station could be a game changer! Thank you for your consideration.

Our class needs the VX-1 Internet Conference Station to help out with the sound connection for google hangout sessions. In our class, we take virtual field trips, which gives us the opportunity to connect with community helpers, businesses, and other classrooms around the world. When funds are not availble for face-to-face field trips, virtual is the way to go! Unfortunately, sometimes sound quality can be an issue and we miss out on parts of the discussion. With the help of the VX-1 Internet Conference Station, I feel my students will be able to better connect with the world. Please help to fulfill our class wish!

Skype in the classroom is an inexpensive way for the students to meet, talk to experts, and share ideas. I plan to use this Internet Conference Station in the library to allow the students to skype with authors and illustrators. Many authors will offer 20 minute Q and A sessions for free only if you have the ability. At this time, I have only been able to find prerecorded interviews on youtube and the sound quality is poor because it is from the computer speakers. I am excited to think of the possibilities that could happen with this device. The device would allow the authors and illustrators to be heard as well as the students with their questions. The idea that the students will be motivated to read and write more is every teacher's hope.

The internet conference station would be an amazing tool to use to connect with other classrooms across the state, country, or even internationally. We could use a program like Skype to learn about different cultures by conferencing with other classes using this station. We could also use it for "virtual field trips" by conferencing with employees of places we are unable to visit. It would help provide opportunities that my students would otherwise miss out on.

My students will receive much better sound with this as we pen pal with other students through Skype and other modes. The sound quality will be more effective than what I have now, to ensure they are all benefiting from the experience. I will be more apt to try new ideas through this with the students, as listed on the information about the Conference Station. New ideas with technology are welcomed in my classroom. Thank you!

As the lead teacher of one of 11 elementary schools in the district, I am working hard to expand our educational collaboration beyond the four walls of one school. In a time when we are supporting teachers to work smarter rather than harder, it is crucial that we have the tools and resources to create a convenient environment of shared communication. This tool would be the perfect way for coaching conversations with other lead teachers, grade level teams of teachers, and individual teacher sharing sessions. I would enjoy the opportunity to bring teachers and their ideas together from miles apart, allowing students to reap the benefits of their dedication and shared learning. This tool would easily bring outside resources into our building at the click of a button.

My class is a global classroom. We love going on virtual field trips as evidenced in my blog (clayton17.weebly.com) and in my Youtube playlist (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0trQs93YT0ZHhWFhw6-RNJ-pdktCySlt), however the sound during these amazing trips (that my students will never likely get to take in real life in their lifetimes due to circumstances of poverty beyond their control) is often poor quality and extremely low in volume due to my absence of a good speaker source. The VX-1 Internet Conference Station would help us in our dreams of exploring the world through Google Hangouts and Skype. My students would be able to gain so much more with quality sound during our expeditions across the globe and would be able to quench the inquisitive fires in their minds by having all of their questions answered with the time that having quality sound will save us in not having to repeat questions. Thank you for being such a caring company, you are doing so much for schools and for students everywhere!
