Nathan Flansburg, Principal

Valentine Hills Elementary School, Arden Hills, MN

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. This book 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 team

Implement professional development

Assess technical needs, student learning, and teacher performance

Address cyber safety effectively

Included are field-tested tools in digestible "bytes" that bridge theory and practice, including tips on how to build capacity by investing 15 minutes each day. Staying ahead of the technology curve is essential. A variety of vignettes from principals will show you how to guide the way as your school's chief instructional leader.
