As I shared on Friday, the BbWorld 2012 conference will include presentations from well known leaders spanning the education landscape. To kick-off the conference and the theme of Social Learning, I am very excited to announce Eric Sheninger, Principal at New Milford High School in Bergen County, NJ and his presentation, “Harnessing the Power of Social Media.” Eric, affectionately known to many as @NMHS_Principal, is a K-12 administrator who has adopted social media and web 2.0 technologies to engage students, improve communications with stakeholders, and help educators grow professionally. He is passionate about establishing and fostering learning environments that are student-centered, collaborative, flexible, and prepare all learners to succeed in the 21st Century. We are thrilled that Eric is able to join us this summer; check out this video message he shared about his upcoming presentation. You can read more from Eric on his personal blog, A Principal’s Reflection, and in his frequent contributions on Huffington Post. In the coming weeks, we’ll be highlighting other pieces of the BbWorld program that are relevant to the social learning conversation. In the meantime, if you have questions or comments, please share them below or tweet us, @Blackboard, and remember to include the #BbW12 hashtag.
