Leadership Blogs to Follow

Within Article V: Organizational Transformation of the Visioning Document, we value leadership development at all levels:

V.g Leadership development at all levels (teachers, included) must become a primary means of building needed capacities to function in required new roles.

Among the Standards for Professional Learning provided by Learning Forward: The Professional Learning Organization, includes the standard for leadership:

Leadership: Professional learning that increases educator effectiveness and results for all students requires skillful leaders who develop capacity, advocate, and create support systems for professional learning.

One way in which principals as leaders develop capacity, advocate, create support systems as well as reflect on their practices is through blogging.  By publishing digitally using platforms such as Blogger, WordPress, and others, principals and other school leaders can span geographic distances and build professional learning networks with colleagues beyond their campus, district, or region.  Connecting with other leaders who share a common vision can provide a support system to ask questions and provide solutions through the journey.
