Technology has changed the way we live and interact with each other. In our modern world, schools need to establish learning environments that engage students and build on digital student experiences outside of school.

Although education leaders do not have to be digital experts, they need to recognize the importance of supporting learning communities that embrace technological innovation. Principals have an important role in creating an effective school technology plan that supports teachers as they explore the potential of the digital world.

The Digital Principal shows educational leaders how to apply their leadership skills to the challenge of creating and supporting a learning environment rich in technology and opportunities for students and teachers to work, teach, and learn in the digital age. From basics of digital literacy and digital citizenship, to connecting to the digital community and accessing digital and virtual worlds, this book establishes a framework for integrating technology into instruction and learning. It includes technology standards specific to educational administrators, a survey testing a school's TQ (Technology Quotient, or its readiness to embrace both the digital principle and the digital principal), tips for grant writing to improve a school's resources, and ways to support teachers in becoming facilitators to students' learning with technology.

This timely book describes effective ways to provide visionary leadership in the digital age.
