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!

With 1-1 iPads at all high schools in my district a focus of my library is to build a collection of tools that support my students creating more innovative projects for project based learning and presentations. To support this I wrote a grant requesting items that would allow me to create a Makerspace in my library. Come checkout the various paraphernalia (drawing tablets, 3D scanner, keyboard, accessories for an iPad), and hardware that were funded. Find out how students are using the resources. Check out how we are using mostly free apps and software. Learn what’s working or is not. . .

Makerspace Definition: “As you know, ITS is committed to providing current and emerging technologies to invigorate intellectual inquiry and collaboration across conventional academic boundaries”

Librarian, Timberview high School
This is my 15th year as a librarian and from the days of the old print book catalog to today I'm just trying to keep up. My library works to support our district 1-1 iPad adoption with digital resources. I am passionate about supporting my students in the learning.
