#DevEdBookClub Round 3: Teaching Tech Together

It's time for our next round of our Twitter book club, and you're invited! Each week, we'll host a Twitter chat on Thursday at 6pm PT to discuss a chapter of Teaching Tech Together: How to create and deliver lessons that work and build a teaching community around them. We start with Chapter 1 on July 7.

Why join? Because learning is more fun together!

How to Participate

If you want to read along with us, here's what you need to do:

  1. Teaching Tech Together can be read online for free! If you'd like to support the author by ordering a physical copy, you can purchase one from the publisher website.
  2. Before the day of the Twitter chat, read the assigned chapter for the week. Jot down any quotes that stand out to you or questions you have.
  3. On the day of the Twitter chat, hop onto Twitter between 6pm-7pm PT. Check the @DevEdBookClub Twitter account for the discussion thread.
  4. Join the conversation (and tag your replies with #DevEdBookClub)! Check out what other participants are saying. Reply with your own thoughts, experiences, or questions. This is a great time to learn from each other and make new friends!

If you can't attend during the scheduled time, you can still add to the conversation after the fact. We'd love to hear your thoughts, whenever you have time to share them! We'll also update this post with links to each thread, so you can easily catch up on all the conversations in one place.

Schedule

Like to plan ahead? Here's when we're currently planning to discuss each chapter.

Note: We're trying something a little different this time. There will be no book club chat on the last Thursday of each month. We're hoping these periodic breaks will give folks a chance to catch up on the reading and to jump back into the conversation. Let us know what you think of this new structure!

Have questions?

Leave a comment below, or reach out to us on Twitter!

See you on July 7!

That's a really great book, I've read it in January, but had not jotted down notes.

I'll try to join the conversation, albeit not syncronously, since on the side of the Atlantic where I'm based it would be 3am...

Not a problem! We've had folks add to the thread the next day. We'll also update this post with links to each thread, for easy reference. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
