It’s important that we as “lead learners” model what our digital footprint should look like. We should show our students a conscientious, mature digital presence. Your digital footprint is seeing what you do online as a potential tool for learning, finding like-minded peers, and building reputations as thoughtful contributors to meaningful digital conversations. Here is my digital footprint.
Linktr.ee: An about.me page is a visual aggregator of all the places you can be found online. This site could be used as a way to quickly share their philosophy of education as well anywhere you learn. Let a linktr.ee page be your launching site for social media!
Connected Principals: A site developed for the shared thoughts of school administrators that want to share best practices in education. All of the authors have different experiences in education but all have the same goal; what is best for students. I am honored to be included here.
Twitter: No longer just used as a platform to share what you’ve had for lunch, Twitter has become a dynamic community for educators who strive to better themselves through professional and personal relationships. These connections inspire and motivate me daily and keep me current on all things education.
Google +: Another platform to connect socially and professionally.
Instagram: Used personally, this medium is a great way to share visually all that you love. Professionally, an incredible way to tell your story.
Pinterest: Not just a place to find recipes or outfits, Pinterest has exploded into education for teachers and learners. interest boards can be a great way to collaborate with other teachers. You can share ideas, resources, videos, news articles, infographics, and images. You don’t have to be working in the same school, or even the same country, to be able to work on the same collection of resources.
Facebook: Although this is more for my own personal connections, I believe that knowing and understanding Facebook is an important practice for educators who want to ensure that they understand the world that our students are growing up in. They need to know how to use their digital power for good and not evil!
SAVMP: Looking to help develop administrators to lead innovative school environments that meet the needs of students today, I have been lucky enough to help George Couros with the “School Administrator Virtual Mentor Program” (#SVAMP).
LinkedIn: An easy place to share your expertise with others.
Outside the Classroom with Dean Shareski: Episode 7 with Amber Teamann and Kristina Ishmael: One of the reasons I do this podcast is an excuse to reunite with friends and share a laugh. Amber and Kristina and I certainly accomplish this. At the same time, these two provide a lot more context to a topic I’m just beginning to understand. Enneagrams are not a new thing but one that seems to be gaining a bit more traction. This conversation will get you started I think and if you’re already into it, I know you’ll enjoy it even more.
The SchoolHouse 302 Leadership Series: Amber’s interview is filled with very specific strategies to end the year in a supportive and encouraging way, coupled with high expectations. We are grateful that she discussed her experience as a principal and those early lessons she learned that taught her how to effectively lead. It was an awesome follow-up to our latest blogpost on effective educational leadership and how to finish the school year strong.
In AWE of Amber Teamann: Generosity Series: In this episode, we hear from Amber about the specific ways she works to generously give her leadership insights tied to leading through seeing others’ strengths and boosting the climate with generosity. We talk about her experiences in leadership and she gifts her lessons to us regarding seeing people as they are not as we want them to be. From her story, we learn how we too can embrace our own strengths and boost those around us through simple acts of generosity in our lives. I loved this conversation with the energetic, loquacious lady leader, and I am honored to bring you Amber Teamann’s Generosity story.
Teaching Tales w/Brent Coley: What’s better than a good story? A story with a message! Join Brent and a different guest each episode as they share a story or two from their experiences in education, along with the lessons they’ve learned that have helped them grow as educators. So pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy as Brent sits down with other teachers and administrators to share some entertaining and inspirational stories of growth.
Mindful Marketing: The intersection of technology, schools, and mindfulness: In this engaging episode, former school administrator and Technology Director Amber Teamann talks about how schools can strategically utilize technology that was implemented as a result of COVID-19. She also shares many key insights into educational leadership and how school leaders can incorporate intentionality and embrace their mistakes in order to be the best leaders they can be.
