{Experience Level: ALL}

Managing communications effectively is a key leadership skill. Taking time to review your communications strategy and ideas will be time well spent. Many problems, in and out of schools, can be directly traced to whether information was communicated, how it was communicated, and who communicated it.

This session will focus on showing how successful communication and working relationships combine in programme management and leadership across the community.

Guiding Questions
  1. Are your reasons for communicating helping you lead the school in managing change?
  2. Is the way you communicate actively assisting you in problem-solving?
  3. Is the way you communicate helping you to strengthen working relationships?
  4. Are there two or three aspects of communication that you should emphasize during the next year?
  5. Is communication difficult for you? What can you do to resolve this?

We will focus on types of Communication that ManageBac offers:
  • Calendars
  • Portfolio 
  • Reports
  • Goals
  • Cumulative Digital Portfolio
  • Integration with 3rd Party apps
  • Resources - Shared with Students & Parents

In this session, we will share how KIS International School in Bangkok, Thailand is using ManageBac to manage to integrate it's communication channels withing ManageBac and introduce to other options as well.
