#IMMOOC – Join the Experience NOW!

February 18, 2017

I am pumped about the Innovator’s Mindset Open Online Course beginning February 27, 2017! As an IMMOOC alumni, this experience is like none other, and The Innovator’s Mindset is a MUST READ for any educator, no matter your role.

The book

Not only is George Couros a master educational writer, but he also has a way of revealing portions of his personal experiences that genuinely connect with the reader. This book is a timeless reference of applicable approaches to the mindset of educators. It isn’t the “next best” thing! In fact, the ideas shared within it will NOT go out of date and need revision. 

The experience

Learning alongside PLN educators all over the world via the IMMOOC is an incredible opportunity, and you have direct contact with the author himself! What more can we ask for as educators? I call it collaboration on steroids! Honestly, I met friends through the IMMOOC last fall that I still connect with weekly. In fact, I feel like my IMMOOC PLN peeps are my EDU-family, and I can’t wait for our “Family” Reunion!

The Results

George said it best when he said,  

“Innovation is not about the stuff; it is a way of thinking.”

After participating in the IMMOOC last fall, I fully embraced the Innovator’s Mindset. I now take risks and explore new opportunities every chance I get. So, dive in! Join us and learn from outstanding educators who challenge your thinking and stretch you to heights you once thought were unreachable. You will NOT be disappointed!
