I have embraced most digital technologies and social media including Twitter, blogs, podcasting, RSS, social bookmarking, mobile technology, educational gaming, and much more. I work with people in a district office setting who fear the use of social media and have such a limited view of how these technologies play out in education. This book is for those readers who are learning along the way.
Most of the authors in What School Leaders Need to Know I follow their work through blogs and twitter feeds. This book is a brilliant piece to help those reluctant and who need more answers to the questions they have. This is book is a great starting point for those who have heard about different digital technologies and social media in school settings. Each chapter takes a digital technology or a social media tool explains is use in simple terms and leave you lots think about.
Each author is approachable and would be willing to share more with you. They can be easily found in a Google search. They like me belong to a huge network of educators who are making a difference by sharing and learning in a network of educators around the world.
I invite those who are exploring digital technologies and social media to read this book as a starting point. But don't stop with the book! Go further! Ask Questions!What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media
