It is heartening to find principals who are using the tools of Web 2.0 to share information and ideas, openly seeking feedback from parents and peers and in doing so re-energise themselves through collaboration and exploration.
In my experience, great school leaders absorb new perspectives and embrace a changing world with creativity. They engage others and set high-standards for themselves and their staff. And they model contemporary practice!
