A page for ramblings on the first ever staff book studies to be conducted at EBHS.
Book #3 (Sept-Oct 2017): Innovator’s Mindset, by George Couros
Some 7 or so EBHS staff (and former staff members) will get together to participate together-ish in the 3rd online edition of #IMMOOC with YouTube live sessions to watch, Twitter Chats, blogs posts and commenting on the blogs of others. This will undoubtedly push some members outside of their comfort zone….just what an innovator should do.
I’ve personally participated in the first 2 online #IMMOOC sessions, and am glad I’ve finally been able to get a crew who join me (from the many who purchased his book when he was at our 2016 Teacher’s Convention).
Here’s to trying something new! I hope we can stick with it! Read the inaugural blog post here.
