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!

This presentation looks at blogging, tweeting, and collaborating as tools for growing personally as an educator and how they can be utilized by your students with the same powerful results. We cover blogging as a reflective tool that provides authentic feedback; as well as where numerous, awesome tech-tool integration ideas for the classroom are found. We will then look at students using blogs to publish their creations and their writing, while connecting with a global audience. Next, the question resounds often in any educational Twitter chat- how can we get more educators to join us? We will discuss the advantages of using Twitter for personal learning, as well as creating a class Twitter account to make connections with other classes and professionals, modeling for students what digital citizenship looks like on a regular basis. Finally, as our integration of technology grows, we realize our walls become smaller; collaborating no longer solely means grouping your student’s desks together in cooperative learning groups. We will look at several global collaboration projects, as well as ideas for making connections with other classes for everyday learning.
