"The world of technology changes by the second and educators are left in the dust to navigate a tsunami of tools. Levin and Schrum provide a detailed roadmap of technology tools available today and how they can be harnessed by educators to improve student engagement. "
Jill M. Gildea
"This well-written, well-organized, and relevant text provides a wonderful resource for novice or experienced administrators who are ready to jump into the 21st century with their students and schools. The text handles all key aspects of understanding the role and relevance of technology in today’s schools as well as planning for future integration. What better way to usher in a 21st century schools initiative than with the sharing of this valuable resource."
"If you’ve never heard of ‘nings,’ ‘voice-threads’, ‘TeacherTube’ or ‘MERLOT’, you’re missing out on the latest-greatest opportunities to advance student learning in your classroom. This book is a MUST for teachers and administrators who are advancing and integrating technology in the classroom."
"In the fast-paced, ever-changing world of technology, educational leaders need to know and understand the skills necessary to survive in 21st-century schools. This book is a must-read for every school-based administrator."
"If you think you are already using technology in your school, read this book! It is loaded with great ideas and strategies that can be implemented right away."
"A must read for all administrators who are leading their schools into the 21st century. This guide will provide practical strategies for leading the way in changing our classrooms to prepare our students for a 'Techy Future.'"
"This is a compelling book and a must-read for any current or would-be administrator who is going to serve in a 21st-century school. It will not only assist us in understanding our students, but help us in meeting the baseline operational expectations we have from both our students and staff."
Jeannine S. Tate
"This book addresses a timely and important topic. While some school administrators embrace technology and make its productive use a focus, others are so swamped with a multitude of responsibilities they do not have the time to immerse themselves in all the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. This book will be a valuable reference for busy school administrators and anyone interested in learning how use technology as a genuine tool for learning."
