Join a Live Discussion with Innovative Administrators

Interview 4 of Twittering for Education

I have really enjoyed watching the amount of school administrators on Twitter increase within the last year. Administrators on Twitter are inspirational. They are great leaders showing their staff by example how to build relationships with parents and students through social media. One of the most inspiring groups that supports administrators on social media is Connected Principals founded by George Couros. Connected Principals is a website where school administrators share collected thoughts about best practices in education. They also tweet these posts, share resources, and support their projects using the hash tag, #CPChat.

Now, they will be hosting an interactive webinar discussion every 4th Sunday of the month on Twitter. Anyone is welcomed to join the live chat, which starts this Sunday, September 26th, at 5:30pm EDT (NYC Time; Check your time zone here). Simply, click this Elluminate Link and login with your name or Twitter name to join the conversation. George Couros, Patrick Larkin, Lyn Hilt, and Dave Meister will be part of the panel which will discuss the following topics:

1. Management vs. Leadership
2. Social Media within schools
3. Staff Professional Development

The panel will also answer audience questions.

  1. It is so neat that there are such passionate educators and administrators working together to change education. I am so excited for cpchat and sorry I missed it this week. I follow the blog and look forward to the next live chat. Great interview Shelly!
    I really like what George said, “I’m only one voice and one viewpoint, it is important to get a lot of voices and viewpoints”.
