iPadpalooza 2014 has ended

iPadpalooza is a three-day event held at Westlake High School in Austin, TX.  This learning festival is a celebration of the cultural-shift the iPads have brought about in education and the world.  This event will focus on creativity, social collaboration, engagement and the compelling ways schools have integrated iPads into their classrooms.  This year we will also premiere our “iLead Academy” which will take place on June 17th (8:30-4:00) and is focused on helping campus and district leadership thrive in a mobile learning environment.

The festival will start on the evening of June 17th at 6:30pm (registration opens at 4:00pm) and end on June 19th and will feature amazing speakers from all over the world, lots of live music and of course, food trailers. Please note there will be limited seating to this event and the iLead Academy.

iPadpalooza…It’s not a conference, it’s a learning festival!

Join Kyle Pearce from the Greater Essex County District School Board in Windsor, Ontario, Canada as he shares his journey of creating a digital learning environment. In Kyle’s secondary one-to-one iPad math class, the goal was to effectively deliver a 3-part math lesson while eliminating wasted time copying useless facts. This resulted in increased student engagement and high levels of student success. Positive results from the one-to-one iPad math classroom has led to the introduction of a One iPad Classroom model for instructional use through the Middle Years Collaborative Inquiry Project for intermediate teachers in 29 schools. Both one-to-one and One iPad Classroom models continue to grow as GECDSB educators strive to redefine digital learning in mathematics with iPad.

From introducing an effective One-to-Many iPad Classroom approach that will allow you to use your iPad as a wireless Interactive Whiteboard via AirPlay to going completely paperless by using cloud-based file storage solutions, you can be up and running with a sustainable model that works! Already one-to-one and looking for transformative tasks to help you and your students climb the SAMR Ladder? Kyle will discuss his new blogging network, MathBlogs.ca - a free platform for teachers and students to share their math work to improve their math communication and develop a deep understanding of the concepts while interacting with their peers publicly.

While technology can certainly make math tasks more meaningful and enjoyable, you can also effectively use iPads to collect useful student assessment as learning and assessment for learning data and organize it to allow students, teachers and parents to better understand urgent student learning needs and develop strategies to improve.
