Synopsis

This book helps teachers understand the lives and minds of today's learners, who have grown up surrounded by iPhones, iPads, computers, and other digital forms-media that are still novelties to many educators. Many educators assume that kids are proficient in using technology, but evidence shows that students need leaders to show them how to thoughtfully and meaningfully use technology to enhance their learning. This book will give teachers:









A method for effectively leading content curation through social media

A vocabulary for discussing technology with students

An understanding of how digital and mobile learning is making waves

Practical ideas and activities for engaging students through devices





There is also the Connected Educators Series website where readers can connect with all of the authors of the series, find more resources, and find real support for putting flipped leadership into practice.
