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!

Come hear six teachers from Eanes Elementary School discuss how to turn a special school or grade level project into a global outreach event. These teachers traveled to the Iditarod in Alaska for a week to learn Iditarod history, the art of dog sledding, cross curricular lessons, and then shared it with their faculty, parents and students using blogging, skyping and iPad projects. They will discuss how this project turned into a global outreach for other teachers very quickly, and how any special school or class project can reach beyond your school with their insight and tips.
