Purpose of the Professional Study
The focus of this professional study is for administrators to learn how they can integrate digital tools into their day to day tasks. Administrators will focus on applying Google Suite for Education as it relates to collaborating and communicating with their teachers, students, parents, and the community. The objective is to create strategies that administrators could use with the digital tools, that will eventually become a model for their teachers in the classroom.
Administrators will learn how to use social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, websites, and blogs to share resources and showcase their schools with their parents and the community.
