Carl Hooker has been a part of a strong educational shift with technology integration since becoming an educator. As Director of Innovation & Digital Learning at Eanes ISD, he has helped spearhead the LEAP program, which put one-to-one iPads in the hands of all K-12 students in his 8000-student district. He is the founder and "Godfather" of iPadpalooza- a three-day “learning festival” held in Austin annually.
Carl has been named Tech & Learning Magazine's Leader of the year (2014), Thought Leader of the Year (2016) and a member of the 2013 Apple Distinguished Educator class. His side company, HookerTech LLC, provides consulting, training, and keynote speakers for districts and conferences around the world.
Mr. Hooker is also the author of the six-book series titled Mobile Learning Mindset, a guide for teachers, administrators, parents and others to support and embrace mobile learning in our schools.
