Do you feel overwhelmed coping with today's technology and busy life style? Join us for an experiment in online book talks to discuss the book CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and About to Snap! Strategies for Coping in a World Gone ADD. Read Dr. Edward Hallowell's book to learn more about gemmelsmerch "the ubiquitous force that distracts us from whatever we are doing", frazzing "multitasking ineffectively", and other issues we face in modern life. How does being "crazybusy" affect us as educators? How does it affect our students? What we can do about it ourselves... and to help each other.
CrazyBusy is available in many formats via online book stores including Amazon.com - and in many libraries. Read an excerpt at http://www.drhallowell.com/crazy-busy/.

PS from Steve Gilbert: Hallowell’s “Connectedness” essay first drew me to his work many years ago. He described the growing disconnection so many of us were feeling and the increasing importance of meaningful connections with other human beings. See: http://www.tltgroup.org/connectedness.htm
PPS from Steve Gilbert: We’re hoping to experiment with different schedules, media, tools for these online book discussions. I’m especially interested in learning about new ways of annotating, highlighting, and sharing the results when we read. I believe these options may provide new opportunities for learning more effectively from readings.
