International Dot Day - Growth Mindset!

September 15th is International Dot Day!
International Dot Day is a global celebration based on Peter Reynolds' book, The Dot. Join the Dot Club to get great resources to use with your class.

The Dot is a great book for talking about growth mindset. Have students write about how they will leave their mark on their classroom . . . school or the world!
Take this fabulous book, mix in some augmented reality, using the Quiver app (formerly know as colAR Mix) and get some highly engaged students!

Connect with other educators with Skype in the Classroom.
