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!

Wait, why are we here? Transforming PD with students
Limited Capacity seats available

The largest and most important stakeholder in education is students. Rather than have adults train adults, this year, the iTeach Manor team started a student-led PD initiative to transform mindsets and give students a voice in how teachers utilized professional development time. Join us as our students demo a training session and our team discusses the initiative that revitalized professional development in our district.

Being a Destructive Force for Good
Limited Capacity seats available

Despite our different relationships with schools we are all working towards the same goals of a more authentic, more awesome experience for students in schools. And it is usually messy, imperfect and can be frustrating.

So how do we navigate our various relationships while still making progress? And keep our jobs.
