Technology has changed the way we live and interact with each
other. In our modern world, the power of digital experiences can engage and
build on the real lives of tech-savvy students.

Although educational leaders do not have to be digital experts, The Digital Principal argues that they
play and important role in creating and supporting professional learning
communities that embrace technological innovation and promote systemic change.
They are also instrumental in developing policies and creating a school
technology plan hat involves and supports teachers as they explore the use of
key digital tools.

The Digital Principal shows educational administrators how to
apply their leadership skills to a learning environment rich technology and
