I would love to hear more about how school leaders are using today’s tools as modelers in a digital-age learning culture.

As a school leader, where do you stand on the following?

On Blogging


  • Are you blogging on your school’s website?
  • If so, who is your audience and what types of topics do you cover?
  • Do you allow for comments?
  • Any interesting stories regarding problems or issues that you faced that you care to share?

  • Are you blogging for personal or professional growth?
  • If so, do you have certain rules or guidelines that you follow?
  • Any interesting stories regarding problems or issues that you faced that you care to share?

Other Social Networking Tools (e.g. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter)


  • Do you use other social networking tools?
  • If so, do you have specific purposes for the different tools? (e.g. I use Facebook for friends and Twitter for professional learning)
  • What is your stance on connecting with or befriending students?
  • Any interesting stories regarding problems or issues that you faced that you care to share?

    Can’t wait to hear the different viewpoints.
