Crowdsourcing a Personal Learning Network: A Reading List

What’s on your reading list? Consider adding these top recommendations for blogs, books, and other “summer reading” to your reading list this year. Finding time to read can be daunting, but the insight you’ll gain—and the quiet break from “doing” that you’ll create for yourself—may just be worth it. Many NGLC schools build quiet time for reading into the daily schedule for students; we need to give ourselves permission to create space and time within our own daily schedules for quiet learning.

A huge thanks to the NGLC grantees and partners who contributed to this list—they are named below. Their recommendations include non-education reads alongside and interweaved between education-related options. A good reminder that inspiration and new ideas can come from anywhere.

Please join in: share your most inspiring reads in the comments below.
