Compliance does not foster innovation.

The Principal of Change

I thought about this statement in regards to a moment I had in a session I was leading at a conference. A long time friend of mine, Beth Still , had sat down in the session (although it was not necessary for her to be there as she could have easily led the session), as I shared some ideas for empowering use of social media for both teachers and students.

The Professional Learning Sweet Spot

A Principal's Reflections

For the most part, this consisted of attending mandatory district “PD” days, professional learning communities (PLC)’s or approved off-site experiences such as conferences, workshops, or webinars. Through the use of social media, I realized that I didn’t really need to be “developed.” The COVID19 pandemic has brought a few of these to the forefront, such as social-emotional, remote, personalized, and blended learning.

The Art of Storytelling

A Principal's Reflections

A great debate that has emerged over social media channels has been how we honor and acknowledge our educators and others in the profession. I think many of us in the connected world have been telling our stories since we signed on to a social media tool. Encourage colleagues to attend and participate in Edcamps or Twitter chats. When at a mainstream conference go up to someone you don''t know and capture their story.
