Summercore is a unique 5 day computer workshop that is designed to energize teachers into becoming far more involved in integrating technology into the classroom. Offered since 1985, Summercore has educated over 2400 teachers and administrators (mostly from Independent Schools); Summercore is a 5 day, 35 hour course which focuses on both skills and issues. Because they divide the skill sessions into JV and Varsity groups, Summercore works for both novices and tech coordinators (and everyone in between). In the spirit of Independent School philosophy and best practices, each Summercore session stays fairly small (around 25 people) so that they can address the computer needs of each participant in a meaningful way. Through lectures, round-table philosophical discussions, numerous hands-on skill sessions and experienced teaching, Summercore has empowered each and every participant to want to return to her/his Independent School to be part of the essential humanware needed to achieve meaningful integration.
The closest Summer 2009 sessions are at Horace Mann School , July 13-17, Riverdale NY just north of Manhattan; New Canaan Country School (CT) June 22-26; Berkeley Carroll School (Brooklyn NY) July 6-10.
The Tufts CEEO offers week-long workshops during the summer as well as day long workshops during the year. Workshops are structured to allow participants to engage in similar activities to their students. Most of the time is spent on hand-on activities and understanding how to present engineering to students - there is very little traditional lecture.

The Laptop Institute (July 19-21, 2009) is an international think tank for schools using or considering laptops or tablets as tools for learning. Created and hosted by Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, Tennessee, the Laptop Institute offers over 80 breakout sessions - from hands-on events to lectures, discussions and networking. Conference sessions meet the needs of educators, technology integrationists, technology support personnel and administration. In 2008, over 500 attendees from 29 states and 16 countries attended, representing more than 200 schools and school districts. Over half those attending are K-12 teachers who collaborate with peers and learn tips for using laptops and tablets in their own classrooms.
