The context of my presentation, was to share our school journey, elaborate on the fusion between blogging, social media and school leadership. My particular pitch, looked at promoting the benefits and impact of online collaborations and how they can shift leadership and impact on whole-school teaching and learning methodology.

I would like to credit colleagues at my school, as well as @LeadingLearner; @KevBartle and @alatalite for the various content and approaches I made reference to in the actual presentation.

PiXL programme:

I was presenting in zone 8 (14 in total), which was called the Leadership Inspiration Zone. This is very flattering indeed!

CaptureZone 8:

This zone promised to bring a wide range of ideas to stimulate discussion and debate. Zone leaders Rebecca Clark and Paul Hammond bring together speakers from across a wide range of settings. Speakers ranged from education of course, but also from a business, sport, charity and a military perspective. Delegates heard inputs from a Raising Standards Leader, a successful headteacher and several national policy makers.

You can see a snapshot of the program below and download a full copy of the PiXL programme.

This is not a one-man show!

If anything, I hope it provided you with some whole-school teaching and learning context in terms of leadership approaches; as well as affirmation of what you may or may not already be doing.
