Carl Hooker has been a part of a strong educational shift with technology integration since becoming an educator. His unique blend of educational background, technical expertise, and humor make him a successful driving force for this change. As director of instructional technology at Eanes ISD, he has helped spearhead the launch the LEAP program (Learning & Engaging through Access and Personalization), which put one-to-one iPads in the hands of all K-12 students in the district. He is also the founder of “iPadpalooza” (http://ipadpalooza.com) - a cultural event showcasing the use of iPads in education. Over 500 people attended the inaugural iPadpalooza with representatives from over 71 districts and 5 different states in attendance.
