Beschreibungen

Facebook, Twitter, Google...today's tech-savvy students are always plugged in. However, all too often their teachers and administrators aren't experienced in the use of these familiar digital tools. If schools are to prepare students for the future, administrators and educators must harness the power of digital technologies and social media. With contributions from authorities on the topic of educational technology, What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media is a compendium of the most useful tools for any education setting. Throughout the book, experts including Will Richardson, Vicki Davis, Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, Richard Byrne, Joyce Valenza, and many others explain how administrators and teachers can best integrate technology into schools, helping to make sense of the often-confusing world of social media and digital tools. They offer the most current information for the educational use of blogs, wikis and podcasts, online learning, open-source courseware, educational gaming, social networking, online mind mapping, mobile phones, and more, and include examples of these methods currently at work in schools. As the book clearly illustrates, when these tools are combined with thoughtful and deliberate pedagogical practice, it can create a transformative experience for students, educators, and administrators alike. What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media reveals the power of information technology and social networks in the classroom and throughout the education community.

Praise for What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media "Reengineering teaching and learning requires bringing social media and digital technologies into the classroom. What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media is the desktop reference for 'digital immigrants and explorers' charting the direction of teaching and learning for the 'net generation.' This is a must-have toolbox for educational leaders who choose to be agents of change. Thanks, Scott and Chris!" —John C. Carver, Van Meter Superintendent of Schools, Des Moines, Iowa "As technology reshapes teaching and learning in the twenty-first century, school leaders would do well to heed the sound insights and advice assembled by the experts in this book. With dozens of concrete examples, it offers something for education leaders no matter their prior experience with technology tools and issues." —Douglas A. Levin, executive director, State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) "Digital technologies and social media continue to evolve and are transforming the way in which we communicate, teach, and learn. This book, written by knowledgeable practitioners, provides a solid foundation for school leaders who are either resistant or unsure of where to begin." —Eric Sheninger, principal, New Milford High School "Contemporary learning is being revolutionized by social media and digital technologies. This book is a must-read for any administrator trying to make sense of why these tools are important and how to use them to connect, communicate, and collaborate inside and outside of the place we call school." —Pamela R. Moran, EdD, president, Virginia Association of School Superintendents
