The book they have written is titled, “Breaking Out of Isolation: Becoming a Connected School Leader.”
Here is the description of the book from Corwin:
As a school leader, you’re required to know more, anticipate change, and prepare young minds for the future. Through powerful vignettes and strategies, you’ll discover how innovation-minded school leaders connect to avoid isolation, lower stress, find support, and share ideas. Grow your professional practice and learn to:
- Jumpstart and sustain your Professional Learning Network
- Strategically and meaningfully connect with colleagues and staff
- Overcome isolation for lasting impact
Includes tips on Twitter, Google Hangouts, Pinterest and more. Get real-world solutions with this easy-to-follow roadmap to transformational change!
My contribution to the book can be found at the end of Chapter 2: Finding Your PLN.
In this ‘Educator Spotlight’ I share my story of how I came to use social media for connecting with other educators, how I use the House of #EdTech as a means of not existing alone in the world of education, and some of my views on the value of being a connected educator.
I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about not feeling isolated in leadership and also a teaching role.
Spike (HoET016, HoET025), Theresa (HoET012), and Jessica (HoET009) have all previously appeared on the House of #EdTech and having the opportunity to enjoy their podcast, PrincipalPLN, and get to know them outside of the education profession I am thankful to have them as colleagues and resources for just about anything I can throw at them.
Thanks for reading, viewing, and sharing!
