    How could we connect an iPad to a screen, a monitor or a projector?

    Yes, the VGA one is the way to go. You will need a regular VGA cable as well, if you don't already have one.

    I forgot to ask one thing. In Windows system we need to press some function key to get the signal to go to the projector or screen only or to repeat or to expand the screen. Do I need to do the same?

    I'm planning to purchase an Apple TV to experiment with connecting my iPad wirelessly to my projector so I can move about a room. I use my iPad connected to my projector in almost every class I teach and having the iPad tethered to a projector by a cable is often awkward.

    Does the projector have an hdmi connection? then you jist need to hook up apple tv to projector and thenyou can wirelessly project from ipad to apple tv to monitor. look for the airplay symbol next to videos, websites,documents. very easy to do. no need to tether with a cable. if no hdmi connection to monitor, you will need adapter. hdmi to vga.

    Thank you for your advice. I'm going to need that adapter because my projector doesn't have an hdmi port.

    Do you mean every time the projector or the monitor will simply repeat what is on the iPad as soon as the VGA adapter is connected without any procedure done on the iPad?

    When you connect your iPad to a monitor, the screen automatically mirrors the iPad's screen. Consequently, you can view photos, videos and apps directly from a large or small monitor. This can be convenient for making business presentations, displaying slide shows or conducting training. Depending on the connectors on your monitor, connecting your iPad to your monitor can mirror content in HD resolution.
