About the Reviewers
Technology can be a mixed bag: An administrator who knows how to use it effectively can increase productivity and connection. However, anyone who is not able to harness its power will struggle due to its prevalence. It has become a staple of school administration, from evaluations to communication. Gary and Dana’s book Technologies to Lead Schools: Leading for Student Learning gets educational leaders started on the path of harnessing the power of technology to effectively impact schools.
