Topic: Blogs for School Leaders
Scott McLeod (Dangerously Irrelevant) is compiling a list of known principal blogs. It can be accessed using this link. The list is (sadly, but not surprisingly) quite short at this time. But hopefully, Scott's Principal Blogging Project will help change that (see my October 5 post). If you know a principal interested in trying out a blog as a means for disseminating information, please direct them toward the project.
I certainly know that daily blogging is a daunting task--I can't sustain that level of posting myself for more than a few weeks at a crack. However, even weekly or bi-weekly posts would send a powerful message to staff, parents, and students.
Administrators are technology gatekeepers, whether they mean to be or not. We need to get going here!
