We’ve been talking to more people this week who ask what the social school logo is about on Facebook pages we’ve created and the answer is very simple. A Social School is one that takes to heart the philosophy of parental engagement by reaching out using social media. Simple as that.
“How do you know if you’re ready to be a social school?” is often the next question. We answer simply in the style of the late Steve Jobs who, when asked how he’d know when submitted iPhone apps ‘crossed the line’ and not get approved to go on the App store, he pretty much said “We’ll just know.”
It’s the same for you. It’s a gut thing that we find people, particularly Heads, just have. The list of ‘why they can’t’ shrinks to be replaced with a list of ‘why we should’.
So there you go. You just know!
