The iPad Conference that isn’t an iPad Conference

I recently got some great news. My school, Ransom Everglades, has approved my funding request to attend the iPad Summit in Boston. I have attended every iPad Summit in the past. It’s a unique conference experience – not because of its focus on iPads, but rather its focus less on the tool and more on innovation.

What I love about the Summit is that you can get real, hands-on training at one of their Pre-Conference workshops. You will walk away with tangible tools that you can apply right away. The conference itself is full of both practical and theoretical topics on the current state of Educational Technology. Be sure to check out the list of speakers and topics here.

In the past, they have featured champions of “big ideas” such as Tony Wagner while at the same time highlighting current classroom teachers, working in the trenches, such as Jennie Magiera.

I have no doubt that this year, I will learn a number of concepts that I can bring into my own classroom as well as to my peers. I’m so excited to be in Boston this Fall!
