Can I run my iPad to a projector wirelessly with no internet?

Before I start, you need to know that I don't know what things like "WAN" and "LAN" mean, this seems to be the cause of my misunderstanding so far.  If you could help me out in common English words, that would be fantastic!
I'm a music teacher, I teach the majority of my class through my iPad Air hooked up to a projector through a lightning bolt/VGA cable and run audio down to a speaker system through a standard 1/8 headphone cable.  But I would like to do this wirelessly so I can walk around the room.
Biggest problem I have is no wireless internet at my school.  I have a plan but I don't know if it will work:
Airport Express - I can use this to create a wireless network in my classroom (a non-internet wireless network)...  Is this a LAN?
Apple TV - If my iPad and Apple TV are both connected through the Airport Express, they can play together even with the lack of an internet connection.
HDMI to VGA adapter - I use this to connect Apple TV to the projector.
From what I've seen I think I have to set up the network at home where I have internet.  I need to put the Airport Express into client mode and do something about changing an IP address.  Does this sound right?
Once it's set up, I can unplug it from my modem at home and move it to my classroom, plug it into a power strip and I'm good to connect my stuff, even without internet at school.
(How can I make sure the Apple TV connects to the Airport Express?)
I think there may be a bonus to this plan as well:  I should be able to hook a printer up to the Airport Express so I can print directly from my iPad completely bypassing the terrible printers we have on the schools network.
Can anyone tell me if this plan will actually work?  I can't afford spending the $250 for something that isn't going to work.
Thank you!

Is this a LAN?
LAN -- local area network.  Yes.
From what I've seen I think I have to set up the network at home where I have internet.
I'd move the hardware to your school without making any changes. The hardware will think the internet is down, but you already expect that & should not be a problem.

The iPad supports only AirPrinters.  You can install some more software on your ipad to print to the printer ( if the extra software supports the printer. )

    You can upgrade to Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion (coming next month), but you need Snow Leopard to upgrade to Lion or Mountain Lion. Check this web to know how to add memory to your computer and the memory that it supports (probably, 3 GB).

  • Can you connect your Ipad to a projector using Bluetooth

    Can you connect your Ipad to a projector using Bluetooth, if so what projectors, My situation is that I want to connect my Ipad3 wireless to a projector where there is no wifi available so the apple TV and airplay won't work.

    No.
    If you have an Apple TV, get an Apple Airport Express wireless router which is small enough to fit on your pocket. You can set up a wireless network without having to have internet for your iPad and Apple TV to be connected to.
    Or use a wired connection.

    As I was saying earlier that is not possible because the Apple TV has no accessible storage and streaming from your iMac is done via home sharing on your local network.
    iTunes purchases can be accessed via the cloud on Apple TV. If you have iTunes Match you can access your full music libary from the cloud.
    Using the iPad to watch your films would require syncing them and then connecting the iPad to a TV.

    Just found out that I can't run microsoft word or adobe photo shop with Mavericks, is there a way to make this work?

    You must be using very old versions (Office 2004 or older, Photoshop CS2 or older).
    Upgrade to newer, or current versions.

    You may need to put the iPad into recovery mode : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808 - you should then be able to reset the iPad and restore/resync your content to it.
    If you do it via a different computer that it's not normally synced to then (from here) :
    If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present.

  • I want to buy an Apple TV device but I need to be sure of its benefits. I have contracted a Satellite TV. Is it true that if I connect Apple TV to system, I can watch TV through IPad wherever by using wireless and App Remote

    If you have an iPad 2 you can wirelessly mirror it to your TV via the ATV device. If you have an iPad 1 then you can use airplay but not all apps are enabled to push video, as the developer needs to do this.
    You can also view all local content from iTunes or your iPad, pushed via airplay/home-sharing.
    The other services available are iTunes movie rentals, TV shows (past purchases viewable from the cloud), Photo Stream, Netflix, Vimeo, Podcasts, Youtube, Sports etc.

  • Can I run the new Mac pro (6.1) with only one stick of ram?

    Will that cause any problems. And if not how much will the overall quality be affected. it won't be a permanent solution, but for a few weeks at least. So can it happen? Can I run the Mac pro 2013 with only one memory stick?

    Per this

    the 2013 Mac Pro is the only MP that can use a single stick of memory.

  • Can't used my iPad to make phone calls with 8.0.2

    I can't get my iPad to make calls or answer texts through my iPhone. Same network, bluetooth on both devices, same FaceTime account. I can't find wifi calling on my phone to turn it off. Handoff is working just fine with safari
    any suggestions?

    Hello jllieblein,
    Wi-Fi calling is only available on T-Mobile. The setting can be found in Settings -> Phone, should you have T-Mobile. Otherwise, Wi-Fi calling is off.

    The steps below detail how to go about setting your iPad and iPhone up to make phone calls.
    Phone calls
    To make and receive phone calls on your iPad or iPod touch, here's what you need:
    Your iPhone and your iPad or iPod touch need to use iOS 8 or later.
    Both devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
    Both devices must be signed in to FaceTime using the same Apple ID.
    This means any iOS device that shares your Apple ID will get your phone calls. Look below for instructions on how to turn off iPhone cellular calls.
    Wi-Fi Calling needs to be off.
    You may also need to verify that iPhone Cellular Calls is turned on in Settings -> FaceTime.

  • How can I run the C program which will interact with user

    hi, all
    I wanna run a C program whose function is that just show a line of characters, waiting for user input and finally show what user has entered. The C can run correctly in command window. But when I use Runtime class, it can not run correctly. My question is that how I can emulate that C program just by invoking Java method. The code I have written below, thank.
          String command = "cmd /c a.exe";  // a.exe is that C program
          String s;
          try {
             Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
             InputStream input = process.getInputStream();
             BufferedReader bufferedReader =
                new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(input));
             while((s = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null)
                  System.out.println(s);
          catch(IOException e) {
             System.err.println("IOException: " + e.getMessage());
          }
