Misunderstanding #3: Summercore is just for beginners
"Not really"
We just finished a Summercore at The Spence School in NYC and one tech
person writes "I'm a very open-minded person when it comes to
technology.  I have a master's in information science, and I love
incorporating technology into my work as an education.  I learned SO
SO MUCH this week, and the week reminded me that it's more important
than anything else to know how to learn and how to stay up do date."

Misunderstanding #4: Summercore is not for beginners
"Not really"
We just finished a Summercore at The Nightingale-Bamford School in NYC
and one participant  writes "I loved Summercore: fun, informative, and
 interesting. At first, I was a little nervous since I'm not very tech
savvy, but then I became relaxed with your positive and smart
approach. Your team teaching works well. If you are overwhelmed the
first day, don't worry about it. It's a lot of valuable information.
By day two, you're in the groove and already starting to generate
ideas about your curriculum with current technology. It's fun!"

professional development for teachers" since 1985?
