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!

Limited Capacity seats available

We all know that administration, whether positive or negative, sets the tone for any campus/district technology initiative. Warren ISD, a small school in Southeast Texas, recently implemented 1:1 iPads in multiple grade levels. To prepare for that, we planned a technology-driven administrative “retreat”, specifically designed for our administrative team. This retreat, and the ideas and initiatives developed from it, have set the tone for our school and sparked grass roots EdCamp style professional development offerings that have propelled our district swiftly forward. And it all started with a weekend in flip-flops. Come let us guide you through our retreat planning process and learn how you too can “turn the tides” from the top down…in your flip flops.
