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!

I’ve been a 6th grade teacher in Illinois since 2005, and have worked with kids as a mentor for most of my life. Teaching is not just a job, it is what I love to do every day with my own kids and my students. I also played and coached soccer and served in the US Air Force.
In 2011, my colleague Chris Hull and I received a grant for 1:1 iPads. Since then, finding the best tools to maximize our students’ learning has been our top priority. We have also developed our own app, edZone, to manage our classrooms.
