    I believe that it is more and more important to be building and maintaining a 'professional digital footprint'.  It provides visible evidence to colleagues and future employers that you are connected, confident, actively involved, and a lifelong learner.  

    I am developing my professional image online through Twitter, my blog on Wordpress, VLN, POND, LinkedIn; I use these platforms to share ideas and collaborate with others.

    I personally believe that professional and personal should be kept separate online - I am not a Facebook user, so have a very minimal personal online presence.

    The last question is an interesting one - we seem to spend so much time warning young people about the pitfalls of being online, that perhaps we don't (or I certainly don't ) talk to them enough about the benefits of developing a professional online profile.  What might this look like for our Secondary Students?

    Be very interested to hear what others think about this.

    Ngā mihi.

    Brilliantly put Heemi, I could not agree more.  Kia kaha to the many people that are showing great courage and doing exactly those things you say, to enact change in our schools.

    People are authentic - people mean what they say, and say what they mean; people walk the talk; people inspire through their actions and not just their words.

    Relationships are authentic - people are valued; culture, language and identity are valued; whakawhanaungatanga.

    Learning is authentic - learning has a purpose, it is real, meaningful and relevant; cross-curricular links; personalised learning - for students and staff.

    Partnerships are key - school, whānau, community. Learning in the community, learning with the community, learning for the community.  Take time to build relationships/partnerships and build trust will lead to greater collaboration, and more authentic opportunities for all.
