2013 Summer Book Club Schedule

We are excited to announce the 2013 Summer Book Club Schedule:

Book Title
Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology. The Digital Revolution and Schooling in America.

Meeting Times
Thursdays, from 12:15pm – 1:15pm (Bring your lunch – drinks will be provided)

Location
CETL Lab or via Google Hangout

Requirements
All participants will receive a copy of the book. Each week, the group will meet face-to-face or via Google Hangout to discuss assigned chapters. One participant will serve as a discussion leader by bringing discussion points/topics as well as supplemental materials such as links to videos, articles, or anything that is relevant to discussion (and that relates to the week’s readings). All participants are invited to blog about the readings of the week. In addition, every week a post that shares what was discussed at the meetings will be featured in the CETL Blog.
