Connected Leaders: Leveraging the Power of Social Networks for Professional Growth (AA-1788)

Course Type: 

  • Administrator Academy

Course Date: 

Friday, April 13, 2018 - 8:30am to 3:30pm


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 also 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 (Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) and productive face-to-face networking opportunities (EdCamps, PLNs, etc.) to help them leverage the power of social networks for professional learning and community engagement.
