Today is the day! [ Book Club]

Our online discussion of A Rich Seam: How New Pedagogies Find Deep Learning by Michael Fullan and Maria Langworthy begins today.  We are excited that many educators in a variety of different roles and responsibilities have already joined our Book Club.  We’re starting this week with a discussion of Chapter One, with subsequent chapters discussed each week through October and November.   We’re looking forward to eight weeks of opinions, insights, ideas and sharing.

As Fullan and Langworthy describe “new pedagogies” as learning partnerships “aiming towards deep learning goals and enabled by pervasive digital access”, we ourselves will be actively connecting in this digital environment.

Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up. [Oliver Wendell Holmes]  If you haven’t joined this community yet, take a look and consider adding your voice.
