Focus your technology leadership skills on what matters most!

Ever-changing technology and a generation of "digital-native" students challenge educators to keep pace, especially in preparing students for a successful future in an increasingly technologically advanced world.

Well-known technology specialist and consultant Susan Brooks-Young emphasizes that incorporating effective, regular use of technology as a tool for teaching and learning is imperative if we want to "stay in the game." In this new book, Brooks-Young gathers her most popular and insightful work into a collection of practical technology strategies for issues most critical to busy school leaders. The book is organized into the following four sections, each focusing on a different aspect of technology leadership:
