If We Build It? Principles for Building Strong Digital Communities
Now, more than ever, teachers can share inspiration, ideas and encouragement via a wealth of digital communities. For those seeking greater connectivity through new and existing networks, this booklet highlights the core components of a thriving digital community. Think of it as your blueprint for organizing — and growing — additional opportunities for teachers to communicate and co-create.
Last month, we looked at how distributed leadership teams can create the conditions for positive change within schools. One of the key ways they do this is by studying data and using insights from that data to drive their improvement efforts.
Research shows that teachers learn best from each other, and that a school leadership model that leverages teacher leadership can positively impact instruction. Why not turn to teachers to help lead in the area they know best?
Collaboration is key to creating strong learning communities within and between schools. The Network for College Success (NCS), which brings together school leadership teams from 15 high schools in Chicago to look at each others’ data and share strategies, is a great example of this collaboration.
