Being a Transparent School Leader: Managing Your School or District's Online Presence 

Many school leaders don't regard time spent on social media as valuable,'' write authors Kitty Porterfield and Meg Carnes. The prevailing view is that Facebook and Twitter are nuisances to control, not tools to effectively promote a school or district's ''web presence'' or online reputation. In this session, participants will explore strategies and online tools for promoting their school/district. Topics include: Using Social Media Effectively, Web Site Promotion and Maintenance Strategies, Online Reputation Monitoring Tools. You can't control the online conversation, but you can join in!

Good Morning Technology! Empowering Student Communication Using Google Drive 

Televised announcements are common in our schools. Involving as many students as possible creates a consistent challenge.  We have formulated a system using Google drive which allows the entire school to collaborate and have an investment in the announcements. Faculty members use shared spreadsheets to schedule students and stories to appear on the announcements, and students collaborate and share stories prior to production. We have a shared production management and scheduling environment so multiple faculty members can collaborate, and a seamless location where post production materials can be placed for editing, storage and sharing with parents and community.
