Amplify Book Study

Currently in my district we are embarking on a 1:1 /2:1 technology initiative.  We have a core group of teachers in grades 2-5 that are piloting a 1:1 classroom experience.  These teachers have 1:1 laptop computers, some are experimenting with alternative seating options and the Instructional Specialists provide training and support formally once a month and informally, whenever they need it!

In order to provide some professional development and get some great new ideas, we are also doing a book study on this great book, Amplify: Digital Teaching and Learning in the K-6 Classroom by Katie Muhtaris and Kristen Ziemke.  We will be tackling one chapter a month and implementing and sharing ideas from the "3 Things to Try Tomorrow" section.  

Stay posted for some great ideas and sharing!
