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!

Teachers and students can be provided ongoing, real-time feedback utilizing many technology tools that are currently available in schools. Attendees in this workshop will learn how teachers can utilize technology to easily assess student understanding before they move on to the next topic or lesson. Formative assessment can be formal or informal to assess the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment It typically involves qualitative feedback for both student and teacher. Technology helps the classroom teacher give that immediate feedback, plus scoring the assessment. Students react favorably to this type of assessment and often say it is "fun". Participants will be actively involved in this presentation as both a teacher and a student.
