Read These 5(ish) Books

Aug 29, 2017 · 2 min read

At Alma, we love learning. In fact, it’s why we do what we do. It’s our mission to build tools that empower students’ greatest learning resource at school: educators.

While this love of education and learning is the anchor of our company’s mission statement, it doesn’t stop there. It’s also the fabric of what makes us tick as individuals. We’re voracious readers, learners, podcast listeners, and thinkers. So we thought it made sense to share what and how we’re growing each month.

This month, we’ve assembled 5 books—nay, 6 (BONUS!)—that we’re digging. We think they’re worthy additions to your shelves (and any of them would make a nice gift for a favorite teacher or principal!).

  1. Learning Transformed
  2. Hacking Google for Education: 99 Ways to Leverage Google Tools in Classrooms, Schools, and Districts
  3. Hacking Project Based Learning: 10 Easy Steps to PBL and Inquiry in the Classroom
  4. Hacking Leadership
  5. How to Be Heard
  6. Start. Right. Now.
