Virtual Book Club

Welcome to the FREE User Generated Learning Virtual Book Club!

For 3 weeks in January 2013, we will be learning and sharing together about our journeys with User Generated Learning. (curation, reflection and contribution) On January 7th, 14th, and 21st, I will post a new set of discussion opportunities for people to join in response to sections of the text. It will be a vibrant space to share, collaborate, and grow. **Even though our book club is over, please feel free to use these resources to facilitate a book club in your school or district.

Ways to Participate

Each week, there will be 3 ways to participate:

  1. I will be posting a Voicethread. You can share your ideas via text, audio, or video in response to the questions. All the questions are intended to invite discussion, and there are NO “right answers” here!
  2. I will be posting questions to Twitter with the hashtag #uglpd. You can join this conversation at any time!
  3. You can submit questions to our Q and A Box at any time. I’ll respond to you as soon as I can!

You can choose to participate in 1 way, 2 ways, or all 3 ways. It’s up to you!
