Haven't seen anything here about Screen Mirroring of iPads with an AppleTV using iOS5. It's awesome!  Check the link here for more -->

We are going to get an Apple TV into every classroom and use an HDMI to VGA convertor to connect them to our class projectors.  Then we have wireless iPad screen sharing to our class projectors.  Awesome!

Anyone else planning to do this or have tried it out?

    I'm excited about this too - for education it is THE biggest unsung hero in ios5. I've heard of people having really mixed results with the hdmi-to-via adapters, so try before you buy if you can.....

    This is a warning to everyone: make sure any new projectors have dvi/hdmi/display port connectors.... Laptop manufacturers are phasing out VGA connectors so in a couple of years your TELA laptop may not come with one...

    I agree, in most cases the iPad+appletv+tv solution will work out a better choice than an iwb.
