The education field is in
the midst of a complete digital transformation. Accordingly, tech coaches and other school leaders
must shift from simply bringing technology into schools to identifying how
the various elements of this changing landscape fit together to form an
improved version of education.
These changes affect everyone in the school, and as entire school communities
are impacted, informed individuals who can guide the transformation are needed.
The problem is that there are not nearly enough certified tech coaches in
schools, and those who are in place are not always adequately prepared to handle
this new mission. This book helps new and emerging tech coaches and school
technology leaders embrace their roles and guides them as they make important
decisions and take meaningful steps to effectively participate in this education
The book includes:
- Advice on planning and guiding change in digital age
- Examples of digital age schools and advice from
“change agents” in the field.
- Activities, action plans, templates, checklists and
other planning tools to help tech coaches and other leaders put what they
learn into action.
