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.

Early and Often: A Daily Dose of Digital Ethics FULL

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

Limited Capacity seats available

When we give students devices capable of connecting to each other and to the Internet, we are giving them powerful ways to share and interact. We are also giving them powerful ways to make mistakes and misbehave. One-shot immunization from a rockstar speaker on digital citizenship no longer does the job of protecting students from their own mistakes and those of others. Our students need a daily dose of digital ethics, planned by their teachers to teach or review ethical and behavior issues that might arise in every lesson that involves online interactions. In this workshop we will brainstorm “just in time” lessons in digital citizenship, and get ahead of the game so that students enter each project aware of the expectations and potential pitfalls. Participants will work in small groups to plan and discuss “just in time” lessons for their own school, and will leave with new ideas and resources for integrating digital ethics and citizenship into every lesson.
