Six Simple Beliefs for Leading Online and Off
As the online aspects of schools become just as important as their brick-and-mortar counterparts, leaders must be as effective screen-to-screen as they are face-to-face. Between email, websites, apps, updates, tweets, attachments, infographics, YouTube, and unceasing notifications, most people are inundated with digital detritus, and they either grow to ignore it or get swept under it. Effective school leaders, on the contrary, see these distractions as spurs to action, models, test cases, remixable commodities, and learning opportunities.
Drawing on recent research on leadership and learning, their experience as educators, insights from startups and entrepreneurial ventures, and information from education technology experts, Dr. Reshan Richards and Stephen Valentine will discuss the intersection of organizational leadership, learning, and technology, provide solid guidance on how to lead both online and offline in today's increasingly networked educational environment, and share six core beliefs necessary for the blended leader to succeed.
Join us to get the perspective you need to excel and the knowledge you need to leverage the tools at your disposal based on a unique approach to utilizing technology for more effective learning and leadership.
To get a head start on the learning, pick up a copy of the presenters’ new book, “
