I’ve written about Parick Higgins at Chalkdust 101 before, but I wanted to share the slides from a presentation he did just last week. They can be found here on Vimeo. The title is “Effective School Leadership in the Digital Age”. While there is currently no audio, the images speak for themselves.
He talks about a number of things in the slides. Near the beginning he presents three ideas that are critical:
Creating a Network
Building out Excuses
Leading by Being
He asks about viewers’ networks rather than just telling us what is out there. He talks about the different kinds of professional development that are needed at the beginning and once teachers have begun really using the technology. He gives examples of what it can all look like. Check the video out; it’s worth your time.
