Review:

Illustrates that technology leadership is not about bells and whistles, but about curriculum and instructional leadership. (John Artis, Assistant Superintendent)

An excellent resource for principals―especially new principals. It will definitely help them establish their vision for technology in their schools. I read the book in one sitting. (Kim Leblanc, Region V Technology Resource Specialist)

Creighton does a wonderful job exploring the complexities of technology in schools. (Vicki Barnett, Course Instructor)

Dr. Creighton′s candid and reflective writing style will make this an invaluable resource to practicing school leaders, students in school leader preparation programs, and professors of school leadership. (Neil J. Shipman, Clinical Associate Professor)

Professor Creighton makes the best case to date for requiring school administrators to understand that effective educational technology is more than e-mail and internet access. (Joe Schneider, Deputy Executive Director)
