Welcome to week two of #cyberPD 's discussion of Digital Reading: What's Essential. This week we'll be reading chapters 3-5. Like last week, we're suggesting you complete your reflection by Thursday to leave a few days to read and respond to the thinking of others in the community before we move onto week three.
Last week at least five new blogs that were started as a result of this event. Congratulations to those new bloggers --- and those bloggers who dusted off their blogs to respond. Of course, you don't need a blog to join the conversation. You can post directly into our Google Community as many of you did.
Also, I know many of you stepped out of your comfort zone to post your thoughts digitally. Thank you! I think we all are learning from your journey. This book is about expanding digital reading in our classrooms, and this book talk seems the perfect way to begin thinking about that.
Remember to stop by the #cyberPD Pinterest Board. The board is a collaborative board and all are welcome to add. Contact +Michelle Nero, if you are having trouble joining. Also on Thursday at 10 a.m. EST Hilliard City School educators will be chatting about the reading under the #cyberPD hashtag. Everyone is welcome to join us. We had a great conversation last week.
Finally, we would like to thank each of your for your work to comment in the community. Michelle, Laura & I were a little worried about how we would keep up with the community that has grown from less than 15 to nearly 150. How would we keep up? How would we continue to be sure everyone received comments? How would we make sure it felt as conversational and supportive as it did in the first years when it was a small group of bloggers? We should have known we wouldn't have to worry. You've been quite gracious in making sure to leave comments for others and build discussions in Google posts. We can't thank you enough for staying to true to the beginning principles of this event.
Looking forward to reading this week's conversation,
