I teach middle school computers and have been looking to get a wireless connection between my Mac or MacBook and the Epson projector that is attached to my classroom ceiling.  I have been doing my best to search for something that will work, but I'm not sure what would be compatible with both and where I could find the best/cheapest product.  I am looking to use my class budget so I need guidance in finding the right product and being able to communicate what it is, what it does, and why I need the money for it.

What model Mac do you have?

I ask because newer model Macs are capable of using AirPlay to mirror your Mac's screen to an AppleTV connected to a TV or projector. Here is a page that will list which Macs will be capable of doing this:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5404

If your Mac supports AirPlay mirroring, then you could get an AppleTV and hook it up to the HDMI port on the projector. Then you could use WiFi to AirPlay mirror your screen from your Mac to the AppleTV that will then display your screen on the projector.

If you don't have a Mac that supports AirPlay mirroring to an AppleTV, then it gets more complex.
