Top apps and resources for busy administrators

administrators-mobile-appsOn any given day, school administrators must juggle a variety of responsibilities, support staff, and respond to last-minute issues or emergencies. In an effort to empower busy school administrators and in celebration of Connected Educator Month, education leaders compiled a list of their favorite apps and social media tools to help them manage increasingly busy days at school.

During an information-packed webinar that was part of Connected Educator Month, South Park Elementary School (Pa.) Principal Rob Furman offered a number of apps and social media resources that can help busy school administrators juggle eMail, tasks, teacher needs, and other deadlines.

“We all know this is a 24/7 job,” he said. “Anything we can do to save a few minutes [is beneficial].”

Furman reviewed some of his favorite apps that he said can help administrators sift through eMails, staff requests, situations that demand immediate attention, and more.
