Web 2.0 and the Building Administrator

I have been asked to give a presentation on Thursday titled "Web 2.0 and the Building Administrator." While I think the conveners of this event would like me to show them how to use web 2.0 tools I have found that one hour is not sufficient time to plug people into the PLN matrix and I will be presenting two other "How To" sessions for all educators throughout the day. For this session I felt a bit deeper conversation was needed. After all, it is far more important for a school leader to make informed decisions about the direction they take their school given the existence of web 2.0 and social media than it is for me to show them a few tricks and tools they might not ever use themselves. I intend this to largely be a discussion session and I hope to challenge many of them. Below is my slidedeck for this presentation. Is there anything else I should include? I would love your feedback.

In the session I will also be asking my Twitter network what they think school building administrators need to know about web 2.0 and social media.

It looks like a great presentation, you are right, an hour isn't enough time to really delve into a lot of tools. The key (and I think that you do this nicely) is to help leaders understand how web 2.0 can impact their school, teachers, students, and learning environment. Good luck!

Looks good. Disceminators has no c, and a double s, though.
Also, you might want to repath it so that the prezi doesn't jump ahead when you click play on the videos.
Aside from that, spot on :)
