Why would I create a blog. Why would I spend time writing. Why would a principal need to do this? The answer is very simple. I want to connect. Locally, I can connect with the students, staff, parents and community by sharing details of events, ideas, and passions of our school. We do not share enough about the everyday happenings in our building. I want to connect the community with our kids!
Globally, it is to our advantage to make as many connections as possible. By connecting with the world you create opportunities to learn. Check out the video below, "The Networked Student".
It is imperative that our students become strong connected digital citizens. Providing opportunities and leading by example will assist in the establishment of personal learning networks (PLN). My PLN includes teachers, principals, and educators of all kind from all over the world. Daily, I have relevant information at my fingertips and a multitude of perspectives on problems we all face. The opportunities are endless. This blog is just the beginning. Please connect with me on Twitter @rgallwitz and follow East Knox High School on Twitter as well at @EKDogs.
Join the conversation!
