Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Professor Morrison has produced an innovative and rigorous approach to multidimensional studies in leadership, technology and pedagogy and in this book demonstrates clearly how complexity theory can be applied to these using mixed methods research. This will be an essential book for students, researchers and scholars in the fields of leadership, technology, pedagogy, evaluation, research methods and educational theory. — Stewart Martin, Head of Department, Centre for Educational Studies, University of Hull

The topic is timely and addressing an emerging view about change, leadership, and the reality of attempting to implement multiple innovations at the same time. It would be used in graduate programs in educational leadership, curriculum, ICT, and program evaluation. It also would make a good "book study" with school and district administrators. — Gene E. Hall, Professor Urban Leadership, University of Nevada
