This week I am attending the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) annual conference in Williamsburg, VA. Today I will be a co-presenter in a seminar entitled: "Blogs: A new tool for engaging the public, your students, and the media." Joining me is Frank Morgan, Superintendent of Goochland County Public Schools (and former Assistant Superintendent in Albemarle).
Here is how we are describing our session:
"This session will give you an opportunity to learn about blogging and how its is being used to engage the public, students, and the media. If you thought blogs were an Internet fad you could watch from the sidelines, these presenters, a superintendent and a school board member, will make their case that blogs are an exceptional new tool for community engagement. You will learn how blogs are shaping public opinion, student learning, the local news, and putting a bright spotlight on public education in Albemarle and Goochland."
If you happen to be a seminar participant and you visited this posting--Welcome! You are off and blogging and I hope you will add a comment or ask a question below.
