Using Social Media as a Principal

The workshop I am attending is discussing the use of social media among administrators, teachers, and even students. Very interesting concerns keep popping up:

  • Teacher Fear: relinquishing the control and SHARING it with students in the classroom on new sources of media and interaction
  • Keeping students accountable: While schools have their own social media policies, enforcing these policies are a constant battle
  • Other end of the spectrum: Too much media contacts – too many postings from too many points
