AA#1788 Connected Leaders: Leveraging the Power of Social Networks for Professional Growth

October 20 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Event Description

By leveraging social media, educational leaders can connect with experts across their communities and the world to expand their perspectives, build relationships, and create opportunities for student learning. Face-to-face networks provide leaders with opportunities to engage local peers in deeper conversations about the educational landscape. Understanding the social media landscape will equip leaders to help professional staff as they integrate these powerful tools in their instruction. This course will provide the knowledge and skills required to become connected leaders by focusing on multiple social media platforms (with an emphasis on Twitter) and productive face-to-face networking opportunities to help them leverage the power of social networks for professional learning and community engagement.
