Recap of iPadpalooza ....

Teachers learning about Global Projects.
I had the privilege to present and attend iPadpalooza in Austin Texas at the Westlake High School.  The crew, volunteers, presenters, and attendees were all so great.  I really enjoyed attending this conference.  I met some wonderful people, attended some inspiring session, had amazing food, and listened to some great tunes.  The conference was not just for the local Texan educators, there were several from Canada, Australia, Washington DC, and even little old me from Kansas just to name a few.  This was the 3rd year for iPadpalooza and I foresee that there will be many more to come.

One of the items that was added to iPadpalooza was a student film festival.  This really got my attention and would like to try something similar with my students since we are one-to-one with iPads with our 7th and 8th grade students and our 5th and 6th grade students have access via iPad carts..  Hosting a student film festival has great potential to connect students with the community, for students to create something amazing and is seen by more than just the teacher.

My goal for this conference was to make connections and to learn how others go about teaching Coding/Programming in their classroom.  I attended several session on this topic along with a few on how to create an app.  Below you will find my notes and resources from the conference.

One of my favorite things to learn about didn't happen in a session but out in the parking lot.  Coming from a small town in Kansas I've only seen and heard about food trucks from television.  I got the biggest kick out of the food trucks, and the food was AWESOME!

Coming soon .... Photo slide from my trip to iPadpalooza.


Thank You iPadpalooza crew for a wonderful time, cookie, food, and a great conference!
