Tech Leadership: Learning Transformed Book Study
MACUL Learning Area
Date: October 15, 2020 – February 28, 2021
Description: Learning Transformed is an ASCD best-seller meant to be a roadmap of support for educators who want to transform teaching and learning in their school or across their district. The book highlights eight, evidence-based “keys” needed for systemic transformation. We will read the book, answer questions and collaborate in Google Classroom, and host a series of video discussions, including a book study kickoff with author Thomas C. Murray, about the strategies that all educators can work to implement in their schools and districts, to better prepare students, starting today. 10 SCECHs are available for reading and participating in discussions. The first 40 completed book study participants will be eligible for a $25 Amazon gift card at the conclusion of the book study (reimbursement for the book).

Then you continue to learn through self-paced content over the three weeks to dive deeper, curate and create while networking and participating in an ongoing Twitter Slow Chat. The culminating day will conclude with more inspiration, including the sharing of artifacts, ideas, resources, and curriculum connections to use tomorrow. The curated list will be shared live after the event.
