Reflector Student helps students connect their iOS devices to a teacher’s Reflector software on limited or restricted school networks. It also allows students to view the other devices that are connected to a teacher’s computer, directly on their devices from comfort of their own desks. This makes classrooms even more connected.
How it works
Using clever Bluetooth* and network auto-detection methods, Quick Connect® and QR codes, Reflector Student easily connects student iOS devices to teacher computers that are running Reflector Teacher.
Once paired to a teacher computer, Reflector Student remembers the pairing to save valuable classroom time and prevent distractions in the future.
Use of Reflector Student REQUIRES the Reflector Teacher or Reflector 2 application running on the teacher’s computer. This is what the iOS app connects to: http://www.airsquirrels.com/reflector/download/
Reflector Student is NOT required to screen mirror devices to a computer running Reflector Teacher/Reflector 2. However, Reflector Student makes connecting much easier when networks prevent connecting with traditional methods.
*Bluetooth available on supported Macs.
Use auto-detection (Bluetooth and network), Quick Connect or QR codes to pair to Reflector Teacher. Once paired, the destination will appear in the iOS device’s AirPlay list.
Previous destinations are remembered for easy connections at any time in the future. Simply open Reflector Student and the device will pair to Reflector Teacher again automatically. There’s no need to go through the pairing process again if you’re connecting to the same destination!
View Connected Screens
Reflector Student allows any paired student devices to view all of the screens connected to Reflector Teacher, including both teacher and student devices.

Ratings and Reviews
Must have for educators!
This app and the Reflector 2 program are amazing! I am an educational technologist and have seen a lot of tech over the years...this is one of the best! It is easy to use and provides so many opportunities for students to use mobile devices for presentations, interaction, tutorials...the list could go on.
Pleasantly surprised to see this works without any issues.
Just have to make sure your device and your computer are connected to the same network and Voila.
My review of Reflector in general
If I'm gonna be honest then I'll start by saying anyone who purchases reflector might be disappointed on its lack of being able to stream your device in full 60fps output while in fact Airserver does just that! Don't waste your time with reflector... (P.s I have full version of reflector and I tried the trial version of Airserver for comparison and yes Airserver is true 60fps mirroring!)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
