July Book of the Month - More Now: A Message from the Future for the Educators of Today

The best educators are not content to do the same old thing year after year. Innovative educators push their thinking by engaging in social media, exploring blogs, attending conferences, and exploring the newest generation of educational books.
We've created a site to organize and share some great books connected to teaching and learning. Each month we will feature a new book from our PLN. Have an idea for our next book of the month? Please share in the comments below.

I am super excited about my July book of the month. There was a ton of buzz around this book at ISTE connected to this book. I love the premise of the future speaking to me through this book.


School change is never easy, but it is necessary to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world.
Our job as educators is no longer to help students memorize a few things they might need someday. Our job is to help students access and use information in ways that are meaningful to them—and to others. This doesn’t mean students don't need schools or teachers; kids need educators as their guides now more than ever. It does mean the priorities and processes of education must change.
In More Now, EdTechTeam Founder, Mark Wagner, PhD, explores the six essential elements of effective school change: courageous leaders, empowered teachers, student agency, inspiring spaces, robust infrastructure, and engaged communities. You’ll learn from educational leaders, teachers, and technologists how you can make each of these essential elements part of your school or district culture—starting now.
It’s time to “dream out loud” and be “an architect of the possible” in creating the future students need. We can’t afford to wait.
