“Navigating the Toggled Term: A Guide for K-12 Classroom and School Leaders helps us focus on the next steps we all need right now. COVID has pushed us to look at the necessary shifts in our educational practices and professional development. This book guides us through reflection on the Toggled Term and where we want to be moving forward. With a better understanding of research, options in practice and applications, these steps become actionable and we are able to shift from planning to practice. I really appreciate thinking about the impact on professional learning. As an Instructional Coach, Chapter 11 speaks to my heart. With a focus on the innovator's mindset and defining one's brand, I am now thinking about the impact that this must have on my approach to professional development. While the Toggled Term has brought many challenges, it also provides many new opportunities that this guide thoroughly details.”—Stephanie Rothstein, Instructional Coach, Mentor, Speaker Writer
“In his previous work Navigating the Toggled Term: Preparing Secondary Educators for Navigating 2020 and Beyond, Dr. Rhoads introduced educators to the new realities that all educators would face due to the pandemic. Now, Dr. Rhoads provides a guide for K-12 classroom and school leaders that provides many resources to help leverage the resources districts have on hand to help teachers and students navigate through the difficulties we are seeing in education. Dr. Rhoads does a fantastic job in walking you through many of the situations you are being faced with and provides effective, and sustainable strategies to help education leaders, teachers and students be successful during this unprecedented time.”—Alfonso Mendoza Jr., M.Ed., District EdTech Coach and Host of the MyEdTechLife Podcast
“The highest compliment, actually the two highest compliments one author and professor of professional development can pay another such author are ‘I wish I’d written that book!’ and, ‘I will be using this book for myself and for my own graduate and doctoral classes.’ Such is the case for Dr. Matt Rhoads’s efforts in delivering this timely and futures—based book to fellow educators. Dr. Rhoads’s Navigating the Toggled Term: A Guide for K-12 Classroom and School Leaders, is the sum of his experiences, expertise, research, and most importantly, his passionate commitment to twenty first century education themes and trends. That these themes and trends have in large part been accelerated by a crisis that educational leaders should have foreseen and planned for long before it occurred only accents the importance of this book. Each of Matt’s chapters address ideas, issues, and leadership matters that teachers and educators might address in transforming not only their own professional development plusses and minuses insofar as embedding technology into their personal high level instructional quivers but also for the capacity of the entire school systems they comprise for consistency of vision and for unanimity of purpose.”—Richard Bernato, EduFuturist, Professor of Education and Instructional Leadership, St. John’s University
