Most popular social media questions & topics from Heads
A short series of talks is now available to share some of the most popular social media questions and topics raised by head teachers over the last couple of years.
Since 2010 I’ve been meeting with Head Teachers specifically on the topic of how they can reach out to parents and engage with them in new and effective ways via social media – particularly Facebook. Below is the first video in the series and the other 8 are available in the free iBook if you’d like to watch those too.
