As educational leaders, instructional leader is just one of the many roles that we are expected to fulfill. Finding a way to balance and share resources with staff can become much easier through the power of social media. Using Web 2.0 tools such as social bookmarking sites, blogs, and Twitter, has made it much easier to learn and share with others. In this series, George Couros will help you to build your own professional learning network and to leverage social media to enhance learning within your learning community, while also building relationships both with your local community and educators/administrators from all over the world. Having a solid understanding of social networks will not only help you as an educational leader, but will help to lead your school community in the 21st century.
