Contributing author to Powerful Designs for Professional Learning (3rd ed.)

Lyn is one of 24 authors of the third edition of Powerful Designs for Professional Learning (2015), a best-selling book from Learning Forward (formerly the National Staff Development Council). I selected her based on recommendations, and she wrote an impressive chapter on using social media for professional learning for educators (teachers, principals, and others). By invitation, she presented the gist of her chapter at a pre-conference of the Learning Forward in 2014. She not only presented her cutting edge ideas about how to use social media, she also set up our day-long workshop so that participants connected through social media during and after the day together. She was very organized, and everyone wanted the incredible Powerpoint slides that she crafted. She covered a somewhat threatening (to some) topic is a way that made everyone in the room feel empowered to use social media. Very impressive — and not just to me! Her understanding of the needs of educators combined with her keen understanding of the latest in technology make Lyn a leader in the fields of education and technology.
