Justin Tarte, Director of Curriculum and Support Services for the St. Louis, MO schools created this slide show presentation and uploaded it as a video to YouTube. He used it for the opening of the school year, and since he posted a link to it on Twitter, others have asked permission to use it. YouTube rights show the video can be shared, so here it is, and let me know what you think. What do you think are effective ways for school administrators to open the school year?
On another note, a Texas school district superintendent creates live videos to share with the public and posts them to YouTube. Here is the opening video he used last year, and just wondering what you think of school superintendent's using social media to communicate with the public in this way.
