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!

In the "why" portion of this session, participants will learn how students are using iPads for differentiating, documenting, and demonstrating thinking in the classroom and why it's a good thing. Throughout the session, participants will keep busy in a mini maker movement manner - tinkering, building, or creating.
In the "try" portion of this session, we'll get a chance to explore and experiment. We'll use what we've learned to make our thinking visible.
