This is a book for school leaders, tech coordinators, and curriculum leaders on how to plan and provide for technology use in schools to support and enhance learning. The second edition reflects the dramatic changes that have happened in the educational technology landscape since then. It includes a new emphasis on 21st Century skills and learning as well as strategies for addressing the new Common Core State Standards mandates. College and career readiness, the rapid growth in the development and use of mobile technologies, and the spread of 1:1 learning and BYOD initiatives are also new topics addressed by the authors. School leaders are increasingly held accountable for incorporating technology in order to meet the demands of the new standards and ultimately to prepare students for college, career, and life. The second edition includes a thorough update in these areas and brings the book into currency.
It's a practical and readable resource full of useful tools, checklists, samples, templates, and examples throughout the text to help school leaders and leadership teams implement strategies.
