This book helps teachers understand the lives and minds of today's learners, who have grown up surrounded by iPhones, iPads, computers, and other digital forms-media that are still novelties to many educators. Many educators assume that kids are proficient in using technology, but evidence shows that students need leaders to show them how to thoughtfully and meaningfully use technology to enhance their learning. This book will give teachers:

A method for effectively leading content curation through social mediaA vocabulary for discussing technology with studentsAn understanding of how digital and mobile learning is making wavesPractical ideas and activities for engaging students through devices

There is also the Connected Educators Series website where readers can connect with all of the authors of the series, find more resources, and find real support for putting flipped leadership into practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Any educator can't go wrong by reading anything Mark Barnes writes! I'm a big fan of his books and what he shares online."

-- Larry Ferlazzo, Teacher
"As a former classroom teacher, Mark understands what is needed to engage students from the moment they walk into the classroom. In his new book, Mark offers his insight to make sure all teachers understand their students, and provides suggestions on how educators can maximize the potential of the iStudent." -- Peter DeWitt, Corwin Author, Flipped Leadership Doesn't Mean Reinventing the Wheel
"As of now there are about 20 books in the Corwin Connected Educator Series, a seemingly ever-growing set of titles masterminded by Peter DeWitt and Corwin Press. Each book is short enough to be read in one sitting, which makes the collection ideal for book studies and professional development, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Also, each paperback is authored by one or two educators who speak (and blog, tweet, etc.) with a credible voice in the world of connected education. Some of the topics include:
Flipped leadership
Tools for connecting educators, parents, and communities
Blogging for educators
Best practices for establishing a makerspace
Tools to connect and empower teachers

Finally, all of the authors are active on social media, and they regularly present at local conferences, which helps in bringing to life the contents of these books."

-- Ross Cooper, Supervisor of Instructional Practice K-12
