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.

With the resurgence of project-based and integrated learning, the student portfolio has been reborn. The standard definition of a portfolio (a folder containing a student's best pieces, most often associated with the visual arts) has been traded for something much more dynamic and essential to the learning process. It can be both the method and the medium used to document, process, collaborate, evaluate and with the internet, eventually publish a student's work.
For educators, this means a living tool for alternative assessment, and an organic way to move a student's thinking beyond the grade/class and into real-world circumstances.
For students, this means that each project becomes an opportunity to publish to an audience - significantly increasing the importance of the assignment. It also creates an opportunity for metacognitive learning to take place. By looking through their own process, they become aware of how they learn - one of the greatest things a teacher can teach.
