Thank you for the PadPillow Stand. I was excited to show it to our class. As you can see, even though we have only one, they found a way to share! Thank you again for your generosity and support of education.

This product has been very beneficial to my classroom! With the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to school policy, the students are allowed to use their technological devices for school purposes for doing research. With the battery life of these devices decreasing faster than before, multiple students are able to charge their device simultaneously to continue their work using technology. Thank you Ipevo! Such a small device making a big impact!

Thank you for the wireless projection system! We are able to share our learning on the screen without leaving our desks! I am also able to use the system to project my computer screen without being tied to the front of my room! I appreciate all the technology help and support you have given me this last year. You have kept my classroom moving forward in the 21st century :) Thank you!

I love the iPad supercharger! No more messing with power strips and power packs - not to mention trying to find enough space to plug them in! This charger is perfect for classrooms. I couldn't be happier with my new gadget! I have exactly 4 iPads in my classroom, so I'm able to set up one little charging/storage space that's easy to monitor with students, and it's easy to see if the iPads are plugged in, so they'll always have a charge when students need to use them!

I am so exited to have this Super Charger in my classroom. I won it at the end of the year, so I am spending time this summer thinking about my room set up. I can't wait to have a small group of IPADs that is not covered in cords but well organized because of this Super Charger. Thank you IPEVO Wishpool for making my wish come true.

This product helped our classroom take off on creating and making top quality videos for our classroom newsletters and more. The students found the product easy to use and set up. It truly helped our video newsletters become more professional looking, rather than the unsteady, shaking, hands approach to video taping our newsletters and the rest of our videos. Thanks and we look forward to creating even more videos next year and beyond.

My students use iPads everyday and this will be a great way for students to show their work or model how to use a certain app. Thank you for granting our wish IPEVO!

My wish came true, however this device has a serious limitation...

This device is amazing, it can connect up to 4 devices at the same time to a display either HDMI or VGA. It has allowed me to project my computer wirelessly onto the displays that I use and to move around with my computer. HOWEVER...

Our school network is set up so that wireless devices cannot see wired ones, and we also use 802.1x EAP security. The HD wireless presentation system doesn't support the EAP security profiles, and I can't see it if I plug in a LAN cable. This means that I either have to connect to it via the on-board wireless or by plugging my LAN cable.

I contacted support but they say there is no way around it. It's an interesting predicament.

Anyhow, it works great, and in a classroom where the technology supports it, it would be an amazing asset to have. I just hope that they update the firmware to support EAP encryption.

I received the iZiggi HD WIreless Document Camera at the end of the year so I have not had a chance to use it with my students but I was so excited to take it home and read about all the wonderful things I will be able to do with it. I can't wait to use it with my iPads and to allow me to use my devices without having to plug them in. The document camera will allow my students and I to be interactive and show their learning in a variety of ways. I am so grateful to iPevo for providing wonderful resources for my classroom that allow me to integrate technology in a more advanced way. Thank you!!!

This pillow stand for the iPad would allow my students to safely prop the iPad up while they are working on interactive learning games or listening to reading. This stand would also encourage my students to work longer because they could get comfortable on their bellies while reading their ebook or working on their programs. My students would love the opportunity to use this product.

This would be perfect when I'm having students utilize a website while they record information on their graphic organizer. Our cases have a kickstand, but they only work in portrait mode, so this would provide a safe stand in landscape mode, which would also make it easier for students to read text on our six mini-iPads in the classroom.

My fourth grade students with disabilities have the opportunity to use iPads in the general education setting. We have seen the use of technology increase engagement, which in turn is having a positive impact upon achievement. My students tire easily as they work on projects. My hope is that this pillow will allow students to continue to work and collaborate and power through the mental challenge while overcoming the physical challenge of holding the iPad while working.

I need it because...
As a 7th grade special education teacher, I have always allowed my students the freedom to move/position themselves where they learn best. Some students who need movement breaks or who prefer sitting in a special chair or sitting on the floor would benefit from the pad pillow. Not only would this provide a more vertical screen that most of my students prefer, but it would also be able to hold and display a variety of items. While designed for the iPad, students could also use it to prop a book or textbook. Many times, a slant board is large, taking up the entire desk/workspace and heavy, not making it ideal to move from classroom to classroom or around the classroom. Students who need movement or change in their position could easily take the pillow pad with reading material or iPad with them to an alternate location without disturbing their peers or the learning environment. This gift could allow for a student to be more independent and provide more ownership to their learning. Further, it could also be used as a rewards/incentive option for my students on a behavior plan. To conclude, the PadPillow holds a multitude of uses within a classroom and within a student's school day. If gifted the PadPillow, I would eagerly use and trial in multiple settings and with a variety of different learners.

This accessory would benefit my classroom by allowing easier collaboration between students for those that choose their ipad as their BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to school. This would benefit those students who aren't fortunate enough to have their own technological device and can look own with other with ease. I believe this accessory would also play a role in helping to protect the student's ipad when sitting on the floor in groups.

We are in need of an Interactive Whiteboard System for our school. Our district has been in financial difficulty for the last few years and no money is budgeted for technology. Any advancement in technology comes through a teacher purchasing it themselves or through donations.

As a teacher of Special Education, I believe this Pad Pillow would be extremely helpful to students who suffer from physical disabilities.

By using this pillow, a student with certain disabilities will not have to struggle with gripping his or her IPad; nor would they have to try to maintain a proper posture just to keep the IPad at eye level at all times.

Thus, the Pad Pillow will help them focus on their work while maintaining a certain level of comfort. Thank you.

The gift of a PadPillow Stand for the iPad would be a wonderful addition to my classroom! My students currently use the classroom iPad for math and language arts enrichment during small group centers. If we were granted the wish of a PadPillow Stand for the iPad, more students would benefit from the iPad as it would be displayed in such a way for more students to have access to it. I also have a student who is visually impaired who would benefit from having the iPad propped for her to see the screen better. I teach 3rd grade in an urban school to a class of very diverse backgrounds and needs.While we are fortunate to have the iPad in our classroom thanks to donations from family members and friends, the students experience with technology is limited. Due to their economic situations, many students do not have computer access at home. The PadPillow would allow the students to share and utilize the iPad most efficiently making the most of their limited technology time and opportunity for enrichment. If we are granted the wish of a PadPillow Stand for the iPad, it would make a wonderful difference to the students' math and language arts centers experiences.

I would like to use this in an elementary inclusion class where we have students with mobility issues. The PadPillow will work will in a number of settings - either on a lap, or as a stand for a students who may not have the dexterity to hold the ipad and use their other hand to press on the ipad. The angle of the PadPillow will be very helpful for seated students. It will also allow for limited mobility students to interact with other students on the rug during floor time activities. The PadPillow is a great addition to any classroom, and I see great uses for it in this classroom as well!
