Digital Leadership: Changing Paradigms for Changing Times
“The individuals trusted with leading educational change in the twenty-first century are the least knowledgeable about the twenty-first century” (p. 23)
Sheringer’s book outlines the essential steps in moving leaders , learners and school communities beyond the traditional industrial worker focused education system towards a new paradigm where everyone challenged to learn with and from technology and each other. The book is a perfect accompaniment to Fullan’s Rich seam as it paves a new path for leaders to embrace bold leadership to make the revolutionary changes that are needed to support and challenge learning in the new millennium. Where Fullan provides a pedagogical theory approach, Sheninger’s offering is a practical guide to change the learning path of your school community. Each chapter provides real samples and stories from educators that have taken up the challenge to improve outcomes for their community by embracing technology –based learning. Excerpts from Sheninger’s own professional learning network that has achieved worldwide recognition support his work and provides a second stream of continual learning and growth.
