The Laptop Institute: One-to-One Laptop Conference
View website
Memphis, Tennessee || July 19-21, 2009
The Laptop Institute 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 2007, over 550 attendees from 37 states and 15 countries attended, representing more than 109 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. The Laptop Institute is an all-inclusive conference with most meals provided as well as ongoing shuttle service to/from the hotel and Lausanne's campus and admission to all sessions and evening events. Not only does this provide plenty of chances to network and learn as much as you can while you're here, but also makes it easy for our participating schools to make travel plans. No need for rental cars or an extensive food stipend!
