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.

I received my product the last week of school so I was not able to use it with students. I am looking forward to using this product next year in my classroom! 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!

Thanks for the USB Super Charger! Since I have to travel throughout the state working with students and teachers to insure that the curriculum is accessible for all students this Super Charger is a life saver. I will be able to work with small groups and not have to worry about devices not being charged. Thanks again!

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!!!

Thank you so much for the Interactive Whiteboard System! We were lucky enough to already have a projector on a cart within the school that this could be used with. My class used this tool for interactive science games that go with our FOSS curriculum, as a center during guided math and guided reading, and we even rolled the cart into the gym to use during our gym/brain break time. (We are fortunate enough to have a large, white wall right inside the gym!)

I also used it for instruction and collaborative writing. The image is a screenshot from a video of a student explaining a door design she created for our Spirit Week door contest. We used an IPEVO P2V document camera, purchased by our PTO, to get the image of her notebook onto the computer and leave the design up during our door creation. I can't wait to work on some new ideas over the summer, now that I have a chance to really think about how to use it. Thanks again, IPEVO, for making my wish come true!

THANK YOU IPEVO!!! Since I have received the USB Document Camera, I have been able to record quality youtube videos. It was easy to use, easy to set up, and most of all have the ability to capture high quality videos. These videos have enabled my students to view my notes and view key steps in solving chemistry word problems. I've seen an improvement with the overall grades since I've began making these videos with the document camera. None of this would have been possible without your help! Thank you to for your generosity and I highly encourage any instructor to purchase this document camera. It will change the way you teach !

I was delighted to receive this product towards the end of my school year, and put it to use almost immediately! We used the camera as a way for students to show off a project that they were working on in class. I was able to move the camera from group to group, and thus minimize the amount of distraction due to transitioning an entire group of middle school children from one part of the room to the other. The kids were able to share what they were working on as a group, garner feedback, and adjust their practices as needed. I especially loved when the kids were able to provide direction to groups in "real time,'" and the groups were able to take the feedback and then show the rest of the class how they were applying the information right away! I really love my iZiggi Wireless camera....it's a great way for me to be able to ensure that students are able to share what they are doing in class, whilst minimizing the time it takes them to share....which is very important when time in class is limited!

The picture I uploaded is from 8th grade Mandala projects. The students were able to have the camera at their table to share what their Mandala represented, and then we used the iZiggi to take pics of each Mandala. I then uploaded the pics, and posted them on the class website for parents to see! It was a great way to get a digital image of my students work...not to mention space saving too! Many of my kids wanted to keep their Mandalas, so it was nice to be able to give them back at the end of the day knowing I had a digital copy!

Our vice principal and several of our teachers use the Typi Folio Case + Wireless Keyboards I received from the Ipevo Wishpool. Not only do they protect the iPads from damage, they also increase functionality. My Ipevo Point 2 View camera gets a lot of use. Many teachers have them, but not everyone. I love being able to show “newbies” some of the things this powerful little camera can do. One assistant came to me to find out if we had an opaque projector. She was amazed to see how easily the Ipevo Point 2 View could do the same thing. Several teachers have borrowed the camera for demonstrations in their classrooms. I use it to make how to videos in the media center.



I have seen other document cameras, but the Point 2 View meets all my document camera needs in media and classroom applications. Thank you, Ipevo Wishpool!

My first graders LOVE our Point 2 View Document Camera! We use it for modeling lessons, taking a closer look at manipulatives, breaking down step by step directions, and for students to share their work and receive immediate feedback from the group. I've included a photo of one of my students proudly sharing her latest writing with the authentic audience of her classmates!

Thank you for our video stand! Students in our kindergarten class have been able to use it to record video while they describe their drawings. We were also able to use the stand to video record the release of our butterflies. It was great to able to be able to capture their excitement for such a memorable time in our school year.

I need this item so that I can set up an iPod/iPad center for my Prekindergarten students. My students work in centers throughout the day to complete various activities that correlate to the skills/concepts taught. This gift would allow my Prekindergarten students a much safer environment to enhance the required skills and concepts.

This product would benefit my classroom tremendously! Due to working on a laptop daily, I am restricted to only 2 USB ports! My jump drive with all of my resources for instruction consumes one port and my wireless mouse uses the other. This leaves no more ports for my wireless power point clicker, that was recommended I purchase on my evaluation, so that I am not contained to one area of my classroom during instructional time while using power point and also my new wireless IPEVO device that I won during teacher appreciation week that I have yet to use! This USB SuperCharger would add so much ease and lessen the time wasted each day when deciding which needed USB I can switch out. This teacher would be ever so grateful!! Thank you!

I have applied for a grant to acquire iPads for my art room. I will get five. I will need a way to charge them while they are in locked storage in my kiln room. There is only one electric outlet in the kiln room.
Art of the future will be done with tablet programs, so I want my art students to start becoming fascile with tablet art while they are too young to be intimidated by the equipment.

Thank you Ipevo for this chance. A super iPad charger would be fantastic to myself but mostly my students because we are school with iPads that are used daily.

We have iPad carts for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students which allow learning to become more hands on relevant through project based learning activities, research, and reading various texts.

We use the iPads frequently which causes the batteries to die, which mean they have to trade in the dead iPad for a charged one and lose the progress on any work that they have started. (All of our iPads charge in a metal cart which makes it impossible to use the iPad while it is charging.)

A super charger would support the learning of the students in my classroom by keeping them prepared and “fully charged” for our jam packed day. When iPads are not fully charged and students lose progress in the middle of an assignment it can be frustrating, this is a downside to our current charging system. This gift from Ipevo would enable my students to always be ready, fired up, and “fully charged” for learning.

Thank you!

I need it because...
I work at 8 schools in a very rural area. Most of my students do not have access to technology, so I bring devices into the schools to make sure that they have access. Because I work at so many different schools, I have run out of power on some of the devices when going from one school to the next. I hate to have to push back sessions because I don't have the ability to charge my devices myself, or I have to put them around a classroom and wait for them to charge. If I had a SuperCharger like this one, I could charge my devices on the go! When I go to one school and finish an activity, I won't have to look around for a place to charge, because I'd have a place to charge with me in my bag. This would be so awesome for me and my students!

The USB SuperCharger would be an awesome addition to my classroom. I am constantly taking turns plugging in my iPads so they can charge and having students wait to use them. It would be wonderful to be able to plug 4 in at one time and charge them overnight so they are ready for my students the next day or allow them to charge as students are using them. It also would provide more room for me to plug in other devices in my room that has limited plug-ins. I would use the SuperCharger on a regular basis and it would help make my classroom more efficient and organized. Thank you for providing these wonderful resources for our classrooms.

As a Technology Integration Specialist, I work with 9 different schools in Richland One. Each school I work with has multiple iPads or iPods.

I would make an absolutely wonderful home for the USB super charger ! Being the only kindergarten teacher in the building prevents me from being able to easily get iPads at a moment's notice as they are housed/charged ALL the way up the hall in a cart. (I would never leave little 5 and 6 years old alone in a classroom by themselves for even a minute! ) I am constantly asking the 1st grade teachers to watch my room while I run down the hall to get the iPads that are being charged. This request is certainly for convenience and the fact that all 4 iPads would be charged and ready to go and housed in MY classroom at all times. This would be a happy ending to something I love using daily with the children, but just can't get down the hall to get them! Thank you for this tremendous opportunity!
