"The skill set of a leader has changed. We haven’t been given any more time or money, but the expectation to stay ahead of the curve has dramatically changed the way we 'do business.' Thankfully, through the use of several social media tools, Sanfelippo and Sinanis show practical ways administrators can meet the demands of our role with ease."

Amber Teamann, Assistant Principal
Watkins Elementary, Wylie, TX

“Joe and Tony do a masterful job of personalizing this innovative work. You can tell this work is their vocation, not just a job. Their writing has been quickly absorbed by doctoral students, faculty and alumni here at @MCDPEL.

Dr. Joe Mazza, Innovation Leadership Manager
University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education Philadelphia, PA

"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press. Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:
  • Flipped leadership
  • Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities
  • Blogging for educators
  • Best practices for establishing a makerspace
  • Tools to connect and empower teachers

Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."

Ross Cooper, Supervisor of Instructional Practice K-12
Salisbury Township School District, Edutopia
