Educators like to read about the leadership journeys of others when approaching any change, especially when it comes to digital leadership. Eric Sheninger has provided current stories of trailblazing educators, including himself, together with essential research, to express the urgency of engaging today’s students in preparing for the current industrial revolution of exponential technological change. It is unlike any other time in history when educational leaders must rise to the occasion to influence others with the tools to affect change in the way we approach “school”.
