This website is meant to continue the conversations, provide additional resources, and inspire you to think differently about the role of social media in school.
The book, Social LEADia builds upon the idea of Digital Leadership defined by George Couros as “using the vast reach of technology (especially the use of social media) to improve the lives, well-being, and circumstances of others”.
Social LEADia provides examples, and support to teachers who want to empower their students to use technology and social media to move beyond just being ethical and responsible citizens towards becoming digital leaders. It brings together the experiences and stories of educators, and the voices of students who are leveraging social media to learn & share their learning, to address social inequality, and to be a positive influence in the lives of others.
