The Model iPad Classroom

iPads have become the hottest commodity in the educational technology market and are outselling Macbooks by a ratio of 2:1. However, the rush to purchase new technologies often precedes the necessary planning that’s crucial to their success as educational tools. Effective iPad programs are integral parts of a larger holistic approach that re-imagines traditional classroom practices and dynamics.
What does the successful iPad classroom look and feel like? In writing his "iPad in Education for Dummies" book author Sam Gliksman spoke to teachers around the country to see how they were innovating with technology. In this session he'll demonstrate a variety of ways that iPads can be used to transform education and draw on specific classroom examples that are included in his book.

Waterloo Revival Band

Having evolved into a contemporary country music must-see seemingly overnight, Waterloo Revival has quickly taken hold of the Texas music scene, selling out major venues along its path. After the much anticipated release of their debut EP “Little Lightning," Waterloo has played for a sold out crowd at Stubb’s, filled Ray Benson’s Rattle Inn to capacity, and secured sponsorship from famed Texas country clothier Southern Thread.

Based in Austin, Texas, the band’s rapid success is a testament to their catchy songs and southern twang; described by many as a soothing mix of contemporary country laced with Texas grit. Waterloo Revival is led by native Austinites George Birge (Lead Vocals and Guitar) and Cody Cooper (Rhythm Guitar), who have been both playing and co-writing music together since early adolescence. Matt Colletta (Lead Guitar) and Mateo Clarke (Fiddle & Mandolin) provide the band’s unique melodies and rock & folk inspired solos, while Jason Klann (Bass) and Thomas Morris (Drums) tie tracks together with unmistakable rhythm.

As Waterloo Revival’s shows continue to sell out week by week, the group looks forward to extending their bookings well across the state borders and spreading their high-energy tracks and infectious Texas charm nationwide.

No Teacher Left Behind: 21st Century Teaching & Learning

It has never been a more exciting time to be a good teacher; it has never been more crucial. With some students deciding to "educate themselves" and others falling asleep and disengaged, it falls upon a great educator to know her audience and leverage the tools at her disposal. When students are given voice and choice to discover their world, authentically engaged students are the results. The pupils are awake, the teachers are alive, and learning happens in a fun and exciting environment that everyone looks forward to being a part of. Join us in discovering many apps that lend themselves well to 21st century teaching and learning. Don't get stuck doing old things, old ways, on new devices. Come learn to do (and share) new things, in new ways, on your iOS devices!

Three "App" Amigos

The cornerstone of our school's iPad pilot program this year has been three incredible apps. All of our students use Dropbox, eBackpack, and Notabilty. Notability is our note taking app that auto syncs with Dropbox. Students can hand write, type, and audio record notes in Notability. It has also helped our students become better organized. These two apps together make a very powerful tool.

eBackpack has become my teachers best friend. While being paperless wasn't a major goal, eBackpack allows us to use infinitely less paper. Teachers no longer have to stand in line at the copier. Nor do they have to keep up with file folders full of student papers. eBackpack's newest update allows teachers to handout assignments digitally, students can complete assignments and turn them in without ever leaving eBackpack. Finally, teachers can grade assignments (annotating directly on the digital page) and return it without ever leaving eBackpack or printing a single document.

I can't imagine our iPad program without these three apps, and I'd love to share them with other teachers.

This is How We Roll...Out 1:1 iPads in Manor

iPad 1:1 initiatives are not a new concept, but every year several districts take on the task. Although there is no definitive blue print for a iPad 1:1 program, districts that take on this challenge quickly find out it is almost impossible to plan for every curve ball that is thrown their way throughout the process. Here in Manor ISD, we looked to local area districts to learn as much as we could. We can say after many months of planning and discussion, Manor came up with a plan that looked solid. Then came the Nolan Ryan curve balls that taught us to expect anything. From those experiences, we came up with the 5 steps to ensuring a successful 1:1 iPad Roll Out.

Step 1: Bandwidth
Step 2: Device Management
Step 3: Teacher Training
Step 4: Digital Citizenship
Step 5: Classroom Management

In this session students and an instructor will share their experiences about a collaboration between students and researchers from the University of Texas at Austin, and high school students from the Pflugerville school district. They came together at John B. Connally High School to form a digital media studio. This was a collaborative project designed to explore the pervasiveness of sugar in our food environment. The objective of the project was to produce an iBook around the topic, "Is Our Appetite For Sugar Killing Us?" For three weeks students took on the roles of researchers, ethnographers, storytellers, designers, and digital media producers. Participants involved in this unique collaboration designed and produced an innovative campaign, using digital and social media platforms to tell powerful and personal stories about the consumption and effects of sugar sweetened products in their homes, neighborhoods, and among their peers. Team members devoted time to studying some of the key issues related to childhood obesity and then explored these issues through creative digital media storytelling.

Unlock the Full Potential of the iPad in the classroom with Casper Focus
When iPad arrived in the classroom it brought a fun, engaging, interactive learning experience to teachers and students. But as the use of iPad in education continues to grow, teachers sometimes find it hard to keep students focused on learning and often must resort to hovering over students to make sure they’re not surfing the web or playing games. With Casper Focus, distractions are no longer an issue and hovering is a thing of the past. With just a couple taps, teachers can command the attention of their classroom by controlling exactly what each student sees on their device.With Casper Focus, teachers can perform classroom management tasks while preserving the magic of iPad. They can do this untethered , all from their own iPad and all by themselves—without assistance from the IT department.
Focus students on a single app 
Guide classes through multiple apps and help them focus on the classroom instruction 
Change focus between apps within 5 seconds 
Feel confident that during quizzes and exams students remain in a secure environment
Ensure access to a student’s iPad if the student forgets their passcode or locks the teacher out 
Monitor whether every student’s iPad is powered up to avoid loss of access during testing
Leverage the benefits of Supervised mode for re-provisioning, proxy, and storage management.
