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!

iResearch: Educational iPad Research You Should Know About LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Enormous investments in iPads are being made without knowledge of research or proof regarding iPads’ impact on teaching and learning. I have reviewed all iPad research conducted in elementary, middle and high school settings to identify the research-based ‘proof’ regarding the iPads’ contributions to aspects of teaching and learning in education. I will share the results, organized by: school type (lower, middle, high school) and subject area (math, English, social studies, interdisciplinary etc.). I will also summarize what is not known yet. I will then demonstrate how school leaders or teachers can make evidence-based decisions using this research ‘proof’ to help plan or hone an iPad innovation/implementation in schools.
