#cyberPD: Share YOUR Book Stack

This is our fifth annual #cyberPD summer learning event and we are more excited than ever!  

Our #cyberPD group has a new meeting place -- #cyberPD Google Community --  and Cathy Mere, Laura Komos, and I are anticipating YOU joining our community and conversations.

It's almost that time of year.  School is quickly coming to a close.  A little extra free time is in the near future.  There will be time for sleeping in.  There will be time for vacations and get-a-ways.  There will be time to just sit and chat.  There will be time to slow down life.  

And there will be lots of time to read.   Early in the morning.  The whole afternoon.  Late into the night.  Whether it's picture books, MG books, YA books, or even a PD book or two.  Uninterrupted time to just read.   

I know you.  You will be reading a PD book over the summer.  That book that will make you think differently about your classroom.  And then you know you'll want to talk with someone about that book.   Of course, sharing your thinking with others will stretch your thinking even more.  Fresh ideas for when you head back to the classroom in the fall.  

That's what #cyberPD does for you:  Provides an opportunity to read a common book, share your thoughts, and grow with educators across the globe.  

You will not want to miss out on the conversations and learning this summer.


I have quite a collection of PD books stacked at home and at school.  Some have been tasted.  Others fully digested.  And yet some books are still waiting.  Waiting to be discovered and read and talked about.  My book stack grows during the school year.  I have a stack waiting already ... They won't all be tasted or digested this summer, but there will be ONE that I can't wait to read -- alongside YOU and #cyberPD!

My 2015 Summer PD Book Stack

So, are you in?  Share your PD book stack by Monday, May 25th in our new #cyberPD Google Community

We'll be making a decision soon on our summer book read.  Then, come July, we'll all have the selected PD book in hand, sticky notes and highlighters ready, ready for sharing.  Let the true learning begin.  I hope you will join in the conversation too!

You read.  You reflect.  You share. You respond to others.
Then repeat.


Stay connected via Twitter and our #cyberPD Google Community to learn more about #cyberPD starting in July and to find out more specific details.  For your planning, the book is divided into thirds and each week in July we read, reflect, share, and respond to others.  
Then the last week, a Twitter chat.
