This podcast features a series of recordings from the first iPadPaloozaOU conference held in Norman, Oklahoma, on August 26 and 27, 2016. The first segment is a series of audio reflections shared by participants in Shelly Fryer’s Friday breakout session, “The Room 108 Radio Show.” Just like Shelly has her students share in her classroom radio show, iPadPaloozaOU participants shared their first names and answered the question of the day, “What have you learned at iPadPaloozaOU and are taking back to your classroom?” The second segment is Shelly Fryer’s five minute closing keynote, shared on Saturday. Five different Oklahoma educators shared a short talk about a subject they are passionate about during the combined keynote. Shelly talked about homelessness in Oklahoma, her school, Positive Tomorrows, and the importance of loving and building relationships with the students in our classrooms. Shelly shared 1 correction via Twitter following her keynote: 1 in 21 Oklahoma students are homeless today, according to recent studies. Check out the podcast shownotes for a link to a recent article citing this statistic. Finally, the third podcast segment is a recording of Dr. Wesley Fryer’s breakout session, “iPad Media Activities and Project Matrix.” The description of the session was: “Come learn the specific steps teachers and students can use to create over 20 different iPad media projects as well as whole-class, interactive iPad writing activities. The iPad Media Activity and Project Matrix ( is used in iPad Media Camp workshops to help teachers learn to integrate effective use of iPads into the curriculum. The matrix includes whole-class response activities (interactive digital writing), single-app projects (using a learning journal like SeeSaw), 2 app projects (create + share) and Multi-app projects (app-smash projects).” The matrix is available as a series of linked Google Draw documents on Check the podcast shownotes for additional referenced links and resources from these presentations. Many thanks to Anne Beck and her organizer team for making the first iPadPaloozaOU a smashing success!
