@Colleen Curtis I’m about halfway, myself. I am excited about applying some of the learning to Miro - but I’m not sure how to do that yet. Perhaps that will be a fun book club live question to explore. “How can we incorporate movement or gestures within a Miro event or utilize Miro to ‘Extend’ the mind in teaching and learning?” Additionally, on a personal note, I am raising a child with ADHD and the points made about the necessity to move and how this actually invokes clarity and ease of learning was a major lightbulb to me. No more, “Sit down and focus” - but, instead “lets move as we learn.” I’m very grateful to have learned about this book and am looking forward to discussing it with you all, more!

Hi @Mercedes Pike - same! 

I’m working on a quick Miro board that we can all introduce ourselves and leave thoughts that will help us inform the discussion. I’ll share that ASAP. 

 

@Frankie Kok here’s the thread for November Miro Book Club, if you want to take a peek! 

 

Also, if anyone has suggestions for December book -- please let Frankie and I know! 

Hello, everyone! I’m absolutely thrilled to have been introduced to this wonderful book. It makes so much sense to me already. It’s as if every page is a happy memory tapping me on the shoulder.

What am I DOING with what I’m learning? Well, I’m assessing and clearing out space…

I’m finding ways to move around more in natural places with natural light! (Hmmm… I ought to have the audiobook so I can listen while MOVING. I’ll work on that.)

… AND I’m looking forward to extending my mind by thinking with all of you.

Thanks for sharing the thought provoking insight @Mercedes Pike. I have never thought about incorporating movement or gestures with Miro. That’s a really interesting topic to explore! Thanks for making me very interested to learn more about the book!  

Nice to see so many vibrant discussion and sharing for the November Miro Book Club @Colleen Curtis
