Book Group Winners and Summer Book Group

Thanks again to all the participants in this Spring's book group. We are excited to announce that four participants of the book group participated in and supported discussions every week of the book group and will be awarded a trip to the Summer of eLearning Conference of their choice. The winners are Cindy Armbruster, Kari Catanzaro, Therese Dristas, and Catherine Trinkle.

In just a few weeks we will begin our summer book group, where we will be reading Angela Maiers' Classroom Habitudes: Teaching Habits and Attitudes for 21st Century Learning. We will begin discussions the week of Monday, June 10th. All educators in the state of Indiana are invited to join the conversation. Participants will have the opportunity to win a trip to the ICE (Indiana computer Educators) Conference in October and receive up to 15 PGPs. Watch for more details on the summer book on the the eLearning website, in the Ed Tech Connect community in the Learning Connection, and here in the blog.

Chapter 9 -- What the Future Holds

I need to start this post with a correction. Last week I posted that there were 2 weeks left and 2 chapters left in the book. I'm not sure where my brain had gone because this is the last week of the book group and chapter in the book. Apparently I just wasn't ready for the book to end. I think it's more likely that I couldn't believe it was already May!! So this is the last week of the book group. Please have all of your comments online by Monday, May 13th at 10am Eastern. I will e-mail the winners Monday afternoon. I apologize for the confusion.

So this is the last week and Sheryl and Lani leave us to think about how we are going to change. How are you going to change your teaching and/or your classroom because of what you read in this book and the connections you made? Are you planning on spending some time this summer building your connected learning community?
