What educational book are you currently reading?

Currently I am reading ‘Creating Innovators’ by Tony Wagner which was a gift from Rod Rock, a good friend, talented educator, thinker and leader. Other than being a thought provoking book it also uses  a Microsoft Tag app for readers to access video content. If you are interested in contributing to a research project exploring innovative learning and teaching practices then you may wish to take a look at http://www.itlresearch.com/. I am wondering what other influential books those who are interested in education are currently reading? Also how much time are teachers and school leaders giving to professional reading?

    Thanks for the shout out, Simon. I really enjoyed Creating Innovators. I loved the QR code connections to videos from the authors and contributors.

    I’m currently reading The Innovators DNA. I’ve recently read Ignorance: How it Drives Science. I’m excited to read in the near future The Art of Innovation by Tom Kelly.
