I am so excited for the inaugural West Coast iPad Summit in beautiful San Diego. I have attended all of the iPad Summit since the program’s inception in Massachusetts. Although labeled an “iPad Conference,” it really is a place for professional educators to discuss innovation, creativity, and the future of education in the realm of mobile computing. At past summits, I’ve had the privilege of seeing prominent Keynote speakers, Tony Wagner (the father of innovation in education), Ruben Puentedura (the father of the SAMR model), the esteemed Jenny Magiera (Ed Tech Pioneer), and many others. I always walk away with new connections and renewed excitement and energy.
This February’s conference promises to be another exciting experience. With keynote speakers Audrey Watters and Mizuko Ito, I’m excited to be further inspired. I will also be presenting on my experiences of retroactively managing an iPad program – in other words, starting with a program and then reigning it in after the fact! Additionally, I have the esteemed privilege of being the official blogger of the conference! I have live blogged all of my experiences at the iPad conference.

The conference is February 4-5, with a pre-conference workshop day on February 3. There is still some space left (although the last three conferences have sold out and this one is on track to do the same) and early bird pricing ends January 10. I hope to see you there!
