Here at iBallz we're huge iPad fans - after all we thought up our legendary drop protection on the day the iPad was announced! Check out our posts on iPad Deployment and a list of free iPad apps for educators earlier on our blog.
Despite being inspired by the birth of the iPad, we certainly don't play favorites - after all we fit on almost any tablet on the market, be it iPad, Android, Blackberry or Microsoft - you name it!

First we hit the Google Apps for Education summit in SF, which got us very inspired about apps! Google really has a lot to offer educators and students. Since the conference we have been working with the EdTech Team (http://www.edtechteam.com), recently supporting their donation of Google Nexus 7 tablets to classrooms. More info at
Additionally in SF we attended and sponsored the integratEd SF conference. At the conference we got to attend group sessions on BYOD program implementation, using social media to engage students and parents, and an amazing iPad 101 workshop presented by Mark McWhinnie (www.markmcwhinnie.com).
Next we hit the road to beautiful Napa for the CUE Fall Conference, which we helped sponsor. We towed the iBallz camper up north and set up shop in the courtyard of the beautiful American Canyon High School. What incredible facilities! The school is beautiful and pristine, complete with a field of solar panels guarded by a friendly group of sheep which came right up to greet us. At the conference we got to hear workshops on everything from Twitter for Teachers by the ultra informative Bill Selak and we learned all about Design Thinking and it’s many problem solving applications. We were amazed by all the creative educators at the conference, fearlessly experimenting with new and innovative models of teaching!
Many thanks to all the EdTech conference organizers! Keep in touch with iBallz for more tips on tablet education - Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter
