Kyle Dunbar is running a virtual book club. The first book is Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds. This website includes a blog that talks about the takeaways and the recordings that they are discussing. Please feel free to join in and mark your calendars - they are meeting on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm. I hope you'll join in.
It is vital that you and I both connect with other classrooms around the world. Students are the greatest textbook ever written for each other - they need to connect and learn from each other. You'll meet other educators and model the kind of learner you want your students to be. If you want your students to innovate YOU must be innovative. If you want your students to collaborate YOU must be collaborative.
Here's the schedule:
January 7th – Meet the Flat Classroom, Chapters 1 & 2
January 21st – Connection and Communication, Chapters 3 & 4
February 4th – Citizenship, Contribution and Collaboration, Chapters 5 & 6
February 18th – Choice and Creation, Chapters 7 & 8
March 4th – Celebrating, Designing, Managing a Global Project, Chapters 9 & 10
March 18th – Rock the World
