Finally, your struggling handwriter is succeeding in school with the help of SnapType. But there’s one catch… The teacher wants to review paper documents. So how do you get that wonderful work from the iPad onto a sheet of paper?
In many schools, connecting to the wireless network and hooking up a printer is beyond the interest of the school’s IT department. The typical response is:
Fear not, there is an easy way to set up a self-contained wireless printer right in the classroom! Apple’s airprint allows the student to print directly to the printer from the iPad, and best of all, neither the iPad nor the printer ever need to be connected to the school’s wi-fi!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- iPad running iOS 8.0 or newer.
- SnapType or SnapType Pro installed on the iPad.
- Printer with wireless direct technology.
While most printers require a connection to a network through a router, wireless direct printers can create their own wi-fi network so that your iPad can connect directly to it (without needing to connect to the school’s network).
One of the best options is the laser printer by Brother.
This is a good option for a few reasons,
- The price is fair.
- It’s known to be reliable and durable.
- It uses toner rather than ink (always prints in black and white, making it fast and economical).
- Take it out of the box and in just a few minutes you can be printing wirelessly to it with your iPad.
