I am currently in the process of reading Mindset and absolutely loving it. It has literally caused me to look at life through different lenses. I view almost everything in a new light now-- from leadership to my students to my teaching, and even my relationships.Not only is the content absolutely amazing, but participating in my book club has enriched the experience of reading and processing even more. You are probably thinking of a book club in the traditional sense, where a group of people have a set schedule and set meeting times to discuss the text together. That is not the case. We are using a tool called Voxer to discuss the book.
Voxer is flexible. It captures your thoughts and ideas in real time, but you can listen, read, and respond as your schedule allows. Because it is summer, we are taking a very laidback approach to our book club. We have a very loose schedule and everyone is able to contribute whenever they have time. It is a warm, inviting, and collaborative atmosphere where all ideas are welcome.
The images below are a peek inside our Voxer book club, so you can see exactly what I mean. Notice how we are using different modes to covey our thoughts regarding the book.
Additionally, our group has developed its own collaborative folder on Google Drive to share resources we plan to use with our students to help instill a growth mindset with them. The learning and connecting continues and it is a beautiful thing!
How have you used Voxer to connect and collaborate with colleagues? What are some other ideas for using this tool?
