"This text presents ideas, guiding forms, and resources to help shepherd educational leaders in becoming more skilled in their leadership, instruction, promotion of a school-based curriculum while utilizing technology and accelerating the learning of students, faculty, leaders, and all stakeholders. The reflective activities at the end of every chapter prompt leaders to think about diverse areas they may have not have had occasion to ponder before."

This book makes school administrators consider more thoughtfully how they are using technology for teaching and learning and why. It helps the reader understand how to plan for and implement technology in a more effective way."
