Product description

Review

Digital Leadership is a focused guide to using the many new channels of modern communication to engage families, tell your school’s story, inspire staff growth and connection, and bring new relevance to the classroom. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options out there, this book will give you a head start on mastering your social media strategy.” (Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive)

"Digital Leadership is a great one-stop shopping place to learn about all the key ingredients you will need for success in the digital age. Sheninger connects the dots with his 7 pillars, his listing of obstacles and ways to overcome them, and the integrated solution that brings it all together. Comprehensive, clear, practical --get it and use it today!" (Michael Fullan, Corwin Author and Dean and Professor Emeritus)

“There are books on technology that don’t show you how to change. There are books on how to change that have nothing to say about technology. Then there are curmudgeonly commentaries that are dismissive about change and technology in equal measure. Eric Sheninger’s book alters all that. Through personal testimony, practical examples and a commitment to clear professional learning, Digital Leadership opens your mind, and shows you the tools that will make you think again about what 21st Century Learning can really look like. If your ipads are used as notebooks, your smartboards are glorified whiteboards and your school has an electronic ban on access to everything, this book will make you look at technology and learning with totally different eyes.”

(Professor Andy Hargreaves, BA, PhD, Hon Doc (Uppsala), FRSA, Thomas More Brennan Chair in Education)

"This book is THE book on digital leadership.  There is no one I can recommend more highly than the most connected educational leader today – Eric Sheninger – to help us navigate all of the changes taking place in classrooms, schools and districts.  The book is perfect to help everyone initiate transformational change in a digital world.  Whether you are a cutting edge techie or a nervous newbie this book is for you." (Todd Whitaker, Ph.D., Professor of Educational Leadership)

Digital Leadership is essential reading for any education leader trying to figure out how technology can strengthen schools—and what pitfalls to avoid. Eric Sheninger masterfully makes the connections as to how technology can strengthen schools, providing an essential guide for today's leaders in education. This is a readable, practical book!"

(Cindy Johanson, Executive Director)

“Digital Leadership” is more than a catchphrase—it’s how school principals must lead students, parents, and teachers—and no one is better equipped to describe this leadership approach than Eric Sheninger.

Digital Leadership is a carefully crafted and highly readable book that simultaneously provides a view of digital leadership from 60,000 feet alongside a boots-on-the-ground realist’s view of modern schooling. From setting aside fears of technology to understanding the importance of communication, public relations, and even branding, Digital Leadership offers compelling recommendations not only focused on the need to change but also on best ways to sustain change.

It’s possible that Eric saved the best for last when he describes the networked teacher and how students must be engaged in new, exciting ways, for truly, school leadership has always been about helping teachers engage students.

Finally, don’t mistake this as a book on technology. From the first to the last page, Eric’s book is all about school leadership, one that I highly recommend to every school leader." (William Bushaw, Executive Director)

"Eric recognizes that ongoing professional development is key to helping staff meet the challenges of the future. Eric Sheninger shares how to leverage technology to build a strong school-based professional learning agenda when other resources are not meeting the needs of your faculty and students.  His story and tools will be inspirational to others. Eric Sheninger recognizes that professional learning is key to achieving the goals of career and college ready standards. He shares the strategies he implements to prepare this staff and students to embrace the power of technology."

(Stephanie Hirsch, Executive Director)

"How do school leaders transform themselves from the leadership style of today to become digital leaders of tomorrow? Eric Sheninger's Digital Leadership is an easy read for those who want to begin the transition to digital leadership but have been afraid to take the first step. More than merely a 'how to' book, Digital Leadership is a clarion call to action that compels the reader to do something now to transform schools into 'vibrant learning communities that are connected and allow social media to unleash creativity in learners.'

Digital Leadership addresses the growing disconnect between the world our students inhabit and the world in which they are educated. Replete with stories and concrete examples of 'how to', Digital Leadership is a must read for any school leader who recognizes that we stand at a crossroads in education where innovative leaders who possess the courage, passion, knowledge, and skills believe that 'technology is not just a shiny tool that can increase engagement but a conduit to endless possibilities that can enhance every facet of what we do in education.' A must read."

(JoAnn Bartoletti, Executive Director)

"I loved this book! It is filled with many examples of how technology is impacting learning in classrooms across the country.  Whether you are a technology guru or learning to embrace technology, every school administrator should read this book to learn ways to prepare their students to be successful in the 21st century. Leadership 3.0 is a mindset that every school administrator needs to embrace and lead with. I am going to request that my superintendent purchase it for my fellow administrators, along with the educators on our district technology team." (Jessica Johnson, Principal and District Assessment Coordinator)

"What a great read! Digital Leadership situates the trends in technology and education within an historical context and provides a blueprint to the reader for a navigable pathway for the future. And it manages to do so in a way that is empowering and energizing, while still addressing the very real fears and challenges facing any leader standing at this nexus of authentic educational reform. It is a very rare blend of philosophy, pedagogy, and practical, roll-up-your-sleeves how-tos." (Dr. Natalie Bernasconi, Lecturer)
