If I were to lead a principal's training program, the use of social media would be a unit in the program's curriculum! I can't stress enough (especially now as we are deeply entrenched in the effects of the COVID-19 virus) how important it is for new school leaders to adopt a #digitalleadership practice.
Social media allows principals to communicate important information and to highlight their school's accomplishments and day-to-day activities! But it also ensures that proper messages are sent out and allows principals to set the desired tone! In other words, it allows the leader to control the content and tone of the messaging.
Most importantly, social media allows for creativity and innovation! It's the perfect tool to build community and to connect with your key stakeholders. And today, this is so important considering the challenges people are facing with #SocialDistancing. How are you leveraging the powers of positive social media? Let's use this platform to share best practices!
