Managing the New Tools in K-12 Teaching and Learning: How Technology Can Enable School Improvement
Managing the New Tools in K-12 Teaching and Learning: How Technology Can Enable School Improvement is about how to manage technology for learning at the district and school levels. It provides an overview of the components of learning technology; these include student devices, networking, software productivity toolkits, electronic curricula and resources, and data system infrastructure. And, it discusses how we can manage our technology efforts more effectively to help our students attain the benefits of this technology. The book concludes with case studies of how this is being done at pioneering districts. We are now at a tipping point in implementing learning technology on a larger scale. This is happening very quickly! Historically, learning technology was driven by a strategy of technology integration, where we called on individual teachers to each determine how to use technology in their classes and make changes in their own ways of working. But to successfully implement technology on the scale we need requires top-down as well as bottom-up efforts. Managing the New Tools in K-12 Teaching and Learning focuses on how districts and schools can now use technology to bring about the big improvements in learning we are all striving for.

Schools Performing Beyond Expectations
Why do some schools perform outstandingly well when others of the same size and serving the same kind of community do not? How do some schools sustain their record of exceeding expectations when others can only maintain it for short periods of time or under particular leaders? Can schools reverse a worrying record of decline with existing staff and leadership, or do they always need new brooms to sweep them clean? And how do you get performance that exceeds expectations not just in one or two exceptional schools but in entire groups of them within one community or local authority? This book draws upon the findings from a unique project - the Beyond Expectations Project - that explored how the best school districts/local authorities and school systems perform beyond expectations (PBE). It looks at the ways in which the highest performing schools, districts/local authorities and school systems achieve and sustain excellence, especially with challenging communities or after years of poor performance and decline. Based on rich data from over twenty education sites across three countries, and full of detailed case studies from Finland, Alberta, Ontario and Singapore - all with stellar records of student achievement on international test comparisons - the book illuminates and illustrates the key factors of success. Chapters cover: *The PBE effect - what is known about exceptional performance and what are the common themes and ideas about PBE within education; *PBE Systems - how systems become and remain high performing across an entire nation, state or province. *PBE Districts - the strategies, approaches, techniques that districts and local authorities use to secure PBE. *PBE Schools - how schools in different sectors and in different cultures achieve PBE and how this might inform and assist other schools. *Leading PBE - what is known about the nature and approach to leadership in PBEs, in particular 'inclusive and inspirational' leadership. A final chapter concludes the book by identifying action guidelines for developing and delivering PBE change that can assist other schools, districts and systems to think about how they might move towards PBE. This book will be of interest to school leaders, teacher, local authority and district officers, policy makers, system leaders and all those with an interest and involvement in securing high performance in schools and school systems.

Mastering the Possibilities: A Process Approach to Instructional Design
Mastering the Possibilities directly involves students in the process of actually designing instructional events through: (1) a comprehensive overview of instructional design principles as they apply in real settings; (2) explanations of how learning principles can be used to design responsive solutions to instructional problems in a range of settings (e.g. educational and training); (3) examination of the component parts of instructional design in a holistic approach by incorporating a wide range of contemporary instructional and assessment methods; and (4) ongoing reflection of one's own understanding of the instructional design process through dialogue with oneself and involvement in a design project. This learner-centered approach to instructional design gives the student extensive experience in using the principles of instructional design as they learn about them. It is, according to one reviewer, very much involved in guiding instruction, rather than presenting information.
