This sequel provides practical and evidence-based ideas, strategies, and experiences for moving schools toward their goals of meeting students', communities', and policy makers' expectations for educational systems.
"Evidence-Based Strategies for Leading 21st Century Schools provides excellent examples of successful practices in schools that are leading the way with the integration of technology for the purpose of preparing students for the future."
“Schrum and Levin not only look at the growing research, but look deeply at successful schools that are utilizing 21st century tools and what factors influence their success. This book contributes significantly to the necessary skills of tomorrow’s leaders.”
"This book provides examples chosen from east and west coasts, from the south and the heartland, and from large districts to small schools. It is rich not only because of the authors’ own 300 hours of observation and interviews, but also because of the deep references to the existing research in the field."
