Leading Technology-rich Schools by Barbara B. Levin and Lynne Schrum shows how award-winning secondary schools and districts are successfully using technology and making systemic changes to increase student engagement, improve achievement, and reinvigorate the teaching and learning process. Through in-depth case studies, we see how experienced school and district leaders use technology in curricular, administrative, and analytical ways to meet the needs of 21st-century learners, educators, and communities. These cases reveal important details addressed by the leadership of these schools and districts that go beyond what they did with technology to include changes in school culture, curriculum and teaching, uses of assessment data, financial considerations, infrastructure, and involvement with the community. The book features:
- Successful models from schools/districts experienced with using tech as a lever for school improvement.
- Case studies from diverse schools/districts across the country that show what works and how it works
- A cross-case analysis that makes it easy to compare individual schools and identify common practices
