Like any teachers, I find myself traveling from class room to classroom. Often I have to travel long distances across the building and therefore, don’t have much time to set up my materials before the bell rings. I recently began looking at several remote desktop applications and I found an app that appears to stand above the rest of the pack.
Team Viewer is a remote desktop application for the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and PC. It is an excellent way for teachers to make the best use of their time in the classroom and not have to worry about the fuss of setting up multiple mobile devices when you move from classroom to classroom.
Team Viewer is a free application that allows devices such as the iPad and iPhone to remotely log in to a stationary computer. In the morning, I come into my office and set up my laptop and then carry around my iPad with me the rest of the day. By using the iPad, I not only have access to my wide variety of apps, but I can also remotely project my laptop screen on the iPad and make use of the programs I have running in my office. By doing this, I have eliminated the need to carry another piece of heavy equipment throughout the busy school hallways.
Installation of Team Viewer on your PC or Mac is very simple. To start a session, you need to open the Team Viewer app and log into your computers individual address and type in your password. It couldn’t be simpler.
Team viewer works on any desktop configuration and is great for setups with one or multiple monitors. The app provides users with a build in keyboard giving you complete control over every aspect of your remote machine.
Last year, I survived a day where i walked into school, opened up my laptop and realized that i had forgotten to save a file and bring it to school with me. I simply remote logged in to my home computer and took advantage of the wireless file transfer option that Team Viewer offers.
Team Viewer is a great app that is available for any platform. There is a free and a paid version, but I found that the free version works perfectly for my needs. I currently have team viewer set to run when my PC starts up so I never have to worry about being without my home files while I am away.
