Good information, difficult to listen

It is painful to listen to this narrator. It is highly robotic and sounds something like my 3rd graders who struggle reading. It's hard to understand and pay attention with this type of narration. The information is helpful, but I am going to have to purchase an Ebook or paperback.

Practical ways to transform your learning environment!

I really liked the practicality of the ideas for "hacking education". My biggest takeaways were moving meetings to the cloud and making more effective use of teachers' face to face time. I also loved the ideas of teachers learning from observing their colleagues in the building using the pineapple chart. Great read for any educator looking to make a difference in their learning environment!
