The Networked Leader/Educator - The role of school/district administrator is essential to what happens in the classroom, yet we often are unaware of some of the amazing opportunities that social media is not only providing our students and teachers, but ourselves as well. As school administrators, we need to be the “Learning Leader” for our organization and social media gives us the opportunity to connect, openly learn, and humanize our organization. When we learn together first, only then can we effectively lead our schools to continuous improvement. In this workshop leaders will focus on ways that they can connect effectively to get some of the best ideas in the world and lead in meaningful ways in a networked world. (6 CPDU credits)

George is the Division Principal for Parkland School Division and an Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Leadership consultant. He believes we need to inspire our kids to follow their passions, while letting them inspire us to do the same. Although George is a leader in the area of innovation, his focus is always the development of leadership and people and what is best for kids. He uses humor as a way to connecting with all of those that he works with. His presentations are known to be both informative and entertaining, yet creating an emotional connection that helps people move to the next level. His mix of research, personal stories, and practical ways to implement new learning help participants feel comfortable in taking risks in their own learning.
