Week 1 -- Introduction

Today is the kickoff of our fall eLearning Book Club. Let's get started with a quick introduction. Respond to this post (by clicking on the Comments link below this post) with your name, school/school district name and your role. Also, please tell us if you are participating as part of a group at your school. It will be great for participants to have an idea of who they are collaborating with in the book club. Beginning next week we will discuss one of Dr. Chen's "edges" each week, beginning with the thinking edge. Don’t forget – all Indiana educators that make a meaningful contribution to each of the 7 weekly blog posts will be registered to win one of 2 free trips to the HECC Conference in November. We will draw the names of the winners at the end of the book club.

    I participated in the summer reading program and really enjoyed Pencil Me In. I look forward to reading and discussing Education Nation. I have invited my colleagues to join me in this discussion (but with everyone busy with RISE, I doubt that there will be many takers:(
