Yesterday Pt. Engand school hosted the inaugural padcampakl.

60 keen participants were warmly welcomed by hosts and organisers Fiona Grant, Helen King and Dorothy Burt with Russell Burt as our janitor for the day. : )

(i)PadCampAKL followed the unconference format with a focus on the creative use of iPads/iPods by students and teachers. The questions asked of attendees were "How can students use these tools to become artists, musicians, story-tellers, photographers, animators, scientists, mathematicians, sportspeople, movie producers and broadcasters?"

The mantra for the day was 

"Go with the flow, take responsibility for your own learning and follow your passion!"

The day kicked off with The Sharing an opportunity for participants to share something that students have created using an iPad/iPod.

Participants had 2 minutes to share. One device was attached to the data projector and participants were encouraged to add a link on the iPadCamp Auckland - Shared Doc to display. Check out this amazing shared resource for yourselves.

We then moved into The unconference

From this amazing start participants then identified area they wanted to learn more about and the focus for the sessions was written up and the sharing and conversations began!

So on a drizzly Auckland morning, eductors from as far as Russell and Christchurch gathered to share best practice using ipads, no money changed hands and the result was as the goal stated, a chance to grow your learning, network and have fun! 

 A huge thanks to Fiona Grant, Helen King and Dorothy and Russell Burt. : )

Thanks to all who came, contributed, listened and learned. : )
