Thoughts from a reflective educator.
George Couros has set up a series of speakers on the general topic of leadership in schools in the 21st century. Starting today, and for each of the following nine weeks, George will be facilitating presentations from exceptional leaders from across North Ameria. You can read more about his initative on his blog.
To help extend this conversation, George asked me to moderate a Twitter discussion on the same or related topics on the Thursday following the webinars. The first discussion is happening this Thursday at 7pm PST and our first discussion topic is, "What does leadership 2.0 mean?" The hashtag for the discussion is #leadership20 if you want to follow along.
Please share this discussion series with any educational administrators you know (or any aspiring educational leaders). Anyone who has an interest in educational leadership is welcome to attend the discussion.
