At ASCD 2011, we got the opportunity to sit down and talk with Eric Sheninger. In a previous blog post, he talked about ways you could get started with Twitter. We spoke with Eric about how he was able to change – from a principal that banned social media in his school to a principal that his students call ‘Mr. Twitter.’
He ‘took the plunge’ into social networking in 2009 as a means to communicate with his stakeholders, and soon discovered a powerful network of educators from around the world that were committed to helping him embrace technology and engage students, parents and teachers. Watch our interview for tips on how you and your district can get started.

He also presented a session at ASCD, Best Practices in Social Networking. He pointed to sharing school accomplishments and showcasing student work as key drivers for his school’s use of social media tools. You can access a link to his presentation on SlideShare.
