A student today needs a host of skills to succeed beyond the walls of the school. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are still the fundamentals needed to build an education, but much more is expected of a 21st century learner. Students need to be prepared with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will prepare them for the technology and ideas of the future.
To get there, students must use technology in new ways. Technology is not simply a replacement for textbooks, notebooks, and overhead projectors. It is an important tool that must be used to its fullest potential.
As an educational leader, you are an agent of change. Any change comes with a whole set of challenges. Understanding how change happens and what prevents initiatives from succeeding is a vital part to any implementation plan.
This eBook will highlight why, as an administrator, your planning must go beyond buying the hardware. It’s not about the software or apps used, or even the type of device. It’s about understanding how the technology can help educators advance students to reach their fullest potential.
