On Tuesday at the TIES conference
I gave a presentation titled The Blogging Administrator.
I discussed the benefits to principals of blogging generally, highlighted our Principal Blogging Project specifically, and had two principals, Drs. Jan Borelli and Nancy Flynn, speak to the audience about their blogging experiences (Jan connected from Oklahoma City via Skype).
[FYI, for those of you who are tracking our progress, we're about halfway to our goal of getting 100 new principals blogging in 100 days]
