Technology Tools for School Leaders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A school leader, be they an administrator, team chair, guidance counselor, or teacher, can be a busy person. Between meetings, observations, phone calls, discipline issues, lunch duty, and other day-to-day activities, it can be difficult to stay on top of everything and still have a smile on your face. This session will focus on three main areas: social media, email and document organization, and blogging. The social media component will focus on using twitter, as well as third-party tools like Buffer, Commun.it, and Diigo, as a set of tools to develop, expand, and interact with your PLN. Managing emails and other documents will be addressed by way of using Evernote as a tool to tag, organize, and share pertinent material. Lastly, Wordpress will be discussed as a platform to maintain a professional and informative website and blog.

Best practices in using all of these tools to maintain a handle on these important aspects of communication and follow-through will be discussed. This session will be "hands-on" with the expectation that participants will have devices (ideally an iPad or laptop computer) available to work on and create necessary accounts. Participants will gain access to a website with documentation, support links, and follow-up information to help use these tools after the session has ended and they return to work. Take charge of your online presence with effective practices and workflows!
