Don′t just ride the technology train – drive it

Today′s children would rather text than talk, use apps instead of maps, and carry their phones, computers, cameras, and stereos in their palms. They need an active classroom, interdisciplinary curriculum, and project-based instruction that mirrors their lives outside the classroom. Author Marilyn L. Grady offers a cut-to-the-chase approach for busy principals who want to successfully lead with technology for enhanced student learning. This helpful resource shows school leaders how to

Develop a technology leadership teamImplement professional development Assess technical needs, student learning, and teacher performanceAddress cyber safety effectively

Included are field-tested tools in digestible "bytes" that bridge theory and practice, including a Principal′s Exploration Agenda that outlines how to build capacity by taking just 15 minutes a day to explore recommended websites and blogs. Staying ahead of the technology curve is essential, and this book is written with an understanding that changes in technology are constant. The variety of principal experiences and vignettes will show you how to guide the way as your school′s chief instructional leader.
