Announcing the 2017 Winter eLearning Book Club Selection

Thanks to all of you for your great participation in the fall eLearning book club. We had over 800 comments and some wonderful conversations. You should have received an email from carnahan@doe.in.gov earlier this week with your PGP documentation. If you did not receive it, please email me. It may be that you didn’t register for the book club and I did not have your email address.

It’s now time to announce the selection for the winter book club, just in time to add it to your holiday wish list! We will be reading Launch: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student by John Spencer and A.J. Juliani. Some of you may be familiar with John from this fall's ICE Conference where he was a spotlight speaker. This book can be purchased as a Kindle or paperback book from Amazon. The book club will begin the week of Monday, February 6th, will last ten weeks, and be worth 20 PGPs. Click here to register for the book club and you will receive a reminder the week before the book club begins.

Kids Deserve It! Week 10: Chapters 28-30

This is the last week of our discussion of Kids Deserve It! Hopefully this book and the discussions that you all have had have given you some ideas to take back to your classrooms and schools and maybe challenged and stretched your thinking. What is your big take away? Have you tried something new in your classroom that you got from the book or the discussions?

This is the last week of the book club discussions. Please have all of your comments made by the end of the day Monday, December 12th. I will send out PGPs by the end of next week, using the email addresses you included in your registration.
