"If I were a leader moving my school or district toward a digital age environment, I would want two things: a conversation with people who had done it to learn what worked and what didn′t, and a real review of the literature. This book supplies a deep dose of both. Even a brief dive offers nuggets of applicable information for leaders."
—Hall Davidson, Senior Director of Global Learning Initiatives
"Schrum and Levin not only look at the growing research, but look deeply at successful schools that are utilizing 21st century tools and what factors influence their success. This book contributes significantly to the necessary skills of tomorrow′s leaders."
