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 transformation.  

The book includes:

  • Advice on planning and guiding change in digital age schools.
  • 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.
