YOU are invited to join this special Shake Up Learning Book Study for school leaders!
I am #superexcited to announce a special study of my book, Shake Up Learning: Practical Ideas to Move Learning From Static to Dynamic, for school leaders.
If you are an assistant principal, principal, superintendent, curriculum specialist, tech director, tech coach, instructional coach, or any other school leader, this book study is for you. I conduct many book studies throughout the year, but this is the first that will be designed specifically for school leaders.
As we look ahead toward the summer and the new normal after COVID-19, we need to come together as leaders to build capacity in our teachers, address the gaps and inequities, and move forward with meaningful digital learning.
The Shake Up Learning book was designed for book studies! I couldn’t just write a paper book. I had to make it an interactive experience and give you extra resources to go deeper and make reading the book a dynamic learning experience.
If you are a classroom teacher, you can find details about the other book studies HERE.

When: This six-week book study will start on May 7, 2020, and end on June 11, 2020.

Where: This book study will take place in a special POP-UP Facebook group that was created just for this study.
Feel free to participate in the discussion each Thursday when questions are posted, or asynchronously as is convenient for you and your time zone.
How: Each week you will read 4 chapters (the chapters are short, like mini-chapters) and complete optional challenges.
What: I will post discussion questions from the book, and issue a challenge or choice of challenges related to that section of the book. We will share #booksnaps, ideas, lessons, failures and success, links, and a whole lotta ways to Shake Up Learning!
