#cyberPD Is Going Wild!

Laura Komos at Ruminate and Invigorate, Michelle Nero at Literacy Learning Zone and I are excited to announce this year's #cyberPD title.  First of all, I want to thank everyone who took time from their busy schedules to post a picture, booklist, and/or tweet professional summer reading possibilities for us to consider.  The stacks were interesting to view and made my TBR pile a little taller.  You can view the stacks here.

So, I know you're interested in hearing which book we have chosen for discussion.  It's never easy.  We try to consider titles on everyone's reading lists, books that lend themselves to thoughtful discussion, as well as books that would be of interest to a wide range of educators.

2014 #cyberPD Title
This year #cyberPD is going wild!  We're excited to announce that we'll be discussing Donalyn Miller's new title:  Reading in the Wild.  We're hoping you'll join us for the event which will take place across the month of July.  

#cyberPD Dates & Host Sites
You'll want to get a copy of the book (available in book or digital format!), find your favorite reading spot, grab the note-taking tools you love, and get ready to share your thinking with our community.  

To Participate
You can participate in July's #cyberPD event by:
  • Blog Reflection:  If you have a blog you may join us each week by posting your reflection of the chapters read.  Then link your blog to the host blog by leaving a comment and your link.  If you don't have a blog, but have been considering getting started, this is the perfect time to create your own space.
  • Blog Commenting:  If you do not have a blog, you are welcome to comment on the host blog to join the conversation.
  • Twitter:  You can also participate by commenting anytime on Twitter using the hashtag #cyberPD.
  • Other:  Last year we had people participate using other sites as well.  If you can link, they will come.  We love a little creativity.    
We hope you'll join us in July!  Let's get wild!
