For a book study for folks within the same school or district, I'd suggest looking at a few essential questions.
Each session can focus on one or more chapters. In your discussion , you could ask:
--> What new ideas emerged for you in the chapter?
--> What support for this idea already exists in your district?
--> Besides adding technology
, what else will need to change to make this idea happen in your district?
--> What initial change / replacemen
t / upgrade can you make to get started?
Of course, your group may come up with better questions :)
Let us know how it goes!

in Chile, South America for five years, and the results were phenomenal . Click on my name and go to my blog on the topic so we can discuss this further.
