iPadpalooza…we’re not a conference, we’re a learning festival!
- Student-Created Books in the iClassroom (session): Publishing student understanding and content in book form is a novel way (pun-intended) for students to showcase their learning. This hands-on workshop will guide learners through a spectrum of book creation apps from limited customization (e.g. modifying text and images) to full publishing. Through the session, learners will explore these tools, create a sample, and share their artifact with others. (Tuesday, 6/18/2013, 11:45am-12:30pm)
- App Celebrity Smackdown (panel discussion): Ever get tired of “There’s an App for that”? Well the folks on this panel never tire of that. Come watch and learn as these app-tastic celebrities battle out for the ultimate title of King or Queen of the App world. This no holds barred event will feature apps that will blow your mind. Audience participation is encouraged. (Wednesday, 6/19/ 2013, 8:30am – 10:00am)
- Speed Date your iPad (hands-on interactive): Come “speed date” your iPad with seasoned iPad educators! Every 10 minutes, you will rotate through one of seven different stations and learn about new apps used to accomplish a lesson, project, or goal. Come away with lots of lesson ideas, tons of apps, and infinite possibilities across all grade levels and disciplines. (Wednesday, 6/19/ 2013, 1:15pm – 2:45pm)
