The exact equipment you need depends on how many iPads you have access to, and what you plan to do with them. The minimum you will need is:
- iPads and chargers. The ideal ratio is one iPad per two pupils.
- Headphone splitters, if pupils are going to be sharing iPads.
- A speaker
In addition, the best way of getting the iPad screen onto your whiteboard or classroom TV is by using a lightning to VGA splitter.
