Using Those iPods to Grow Leadership Skills: School District Leaders Share Expertise In New Podcast For Administrators

A new web site sponsored by McGraw-Hill Education’s Urban Advisory Resource offers advice on improving schools from superintendents and other education leaders across the country in an easily accessible format. The District Leader’s Podcast features interviews each week with various experts from the front lines of education. School leaders can download these Podcasts to a portable media player for listening on the go. Examples of the topics covered include:

• Making the Tough Decisions,
• Improving Student Performance,
• Urban Education, and
• Trends in Education and Leadership.

The site is robust in content and diversified in leadership ideas. It will give you a reason to use your iPod to explore new thinking and learn from administrators in the field. The site will walk you through “How it works” and “How to get started.”
"We know from firsthand experience that one of the best ways to improve education is to share ideas about what works best—and what doesn’t. We are excited about the possibilities ahead, thanks to this resource," said Arthur Griffin, vice president of the Urban Advisory Resource.

Ask Yourself:

Could I benefit from powerful district leaders who are willing to share proven strategies and ideas?

Am I ready to venture into learning through Podcasts?
