Positive Impact

Earlier this month I was fortunate to speak at #140edu in New York City.  The title of my 15 minute presentation was "School Improvement One Character at a Time."  I used this opportunity to discuss the positive impact that social media has had on the culture of my school and professional growth as a school leader.  Here are 6 ways I am using social media in education to improve teaching, learning, and leading:
  • Communication
  • Public Relations
  • Branding
  • Professional Growth/Development
  • Student Engagement
  • Opportunity
The video of my presentation below describes each of the categories above in more detail.

Is social media having a positive impact on your work as an educator?  If so how?
