Technology in schools has evolved from the predominance of stand-alone computers to a blend of computer, media, communications, and other forms of technology dominated by the ubiquitous Internet and World Wide Web. In addition, K-12 education has evolved into a much more outcomes-driven enterprise that depends upon technology and data to perform many of its basic functions.  

 

The newly revised fifth edition of Educational Leadership and Planning for Technology provides educators with both the theoretical and the practical considerations for planning and implementing technology in todays schools, with an emphasis on the total application of technology including both administrative and instructional uses. Designed for preservice and inservice educators such as administrators, teachers, technology coordinators, and media specialists, this fifth edition text builds a strong foundation from which educators may provide informed leadership and become agents for realizing the powerful potential of technology in their schools.

 

"I have used the textbook in teaching my course, Leadership in Educational Technology, in an online format the past four springs.  I began the course and found this text to be the best available. I am still of that opinion." --Patrick Durow, Creighton University

"I have used this text primarily because of it's accessible writing and it's completeness of coverage. I do not use many texts in my teaching, so it is a compliment to any author when I can use their work in my courses." --Steven Smith, Northern Kentucky University
