“With Engage Teacher, I’m able to quickly switch between the document camera, the computer or video with a simple click. The children get their iPads out, quickly log in, then I’m able to share the document with them and we are able to work on it as a whole class.” — Yvonne Madigan, 1st Grade Teacher, Acacia Elementary
Engage Teacher is an app and server system that allows teachers the flexibility to present content from an iPad, a computer or several video sources to the entire classroom while freely roaming the room with an iPad. For optimal performance, this iPad app should be used with a Pointmaker CPN-5600 with internal Engage server.
The Pointmaker system (about the size of a ream of standard paper), is typically connected to AV equipment, such as a laptop, document camera, DVD player and more.

With the Engage Teacher app, you automatically create a snapshot of your iPad content, leaving the original file untouched and making the new content more flexible for use in presentations and collaboration. Open, zoom and pan content such as:
+ Photos from your Photo Stream or the app’s integrated camera
+ PowerPoint presentations
+ Excel spreadsheets
+ Word docs
+ Web pages, including pages with live video
Other Engage Teacher features allow teachers to:
+ Share iPad content with student iPads, as well as large screen displays for the whole class to see.
+ Share images from AV equipment connected to the Pointmaker system, including document cameras, laptops, DVD players and more.
+ Display content on a variety of devices such as projectors, Apple TV and many touch screen displays (contact us for compatible touch screens).
+ Draw, write & highlight over shared content to focus student attention on areas of interest in documents, photos, slides, AV images or live web pages.
+ Switch between AV sources from your iPad while freely roaming the room.
+ Select a student’s iPad work to display for the entire classroom to see.
+ Save student work on their iPad or send it by e-mail.
+ Seamlessly integrate with Engage Student iPad app (optional)
