How might educational leaders use blogs? Well first off, they use it for communication. Our superintendent currently loves to blog. He keeps us up to date on all sorts of different issues and topics that pertain to our district. At times he is humorous, sentimental, or even sarcastic, but generally he blogs to keep us informed. It has become something that we both expect and enjoy. Blogging is a great communication tool.
Another reason educational leaders might blog is to share their knowledge or even offer insightful suggestions when something powerful has been discovered. How wonderful is it to be able to share what you know and help better others? That's what education is after all. Sharing knowledge is a wonderful gift.
