One way to combat isolation is to become a “connected educator,” using social media to connect with other leaders from across the country. Hashtags specific to school leadership include ‪#principalpln and ‪#principalsinaction. For tech-savvy educators seeking to learn more about administration, a number of websites offer resources and free materials. The the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) website offers a resource page with suggested reading materials, copies of Principal magazine, newsletters, white papers and links to sessions from the NAESP annual conference. Webinars and online learning possibilities can also help. A number of “principal practice” videos are available for free streaming on the PBS Learning website, funded by the Wallace Foundation. Education World also has a collection of resources called the Principal Files, focused largely on occupational challenges.
