  2. Leading from the Library: Help Your School Community Thrive in the Digital Age

    In this book, a librarian and an education leader team up to reflect on the librarian’s ability to build connections in two ways. First, they discuss the benefits of bringing the outside world into the library through the use of social media, videoconferencing and other tools that allow librarians to partner with others. Then they expand upon these connections by addressing how librarians can lead in the greater educational community by sharing resources and strategies, and partnering with school leaders to tell the story of the school community. This book features connections to the Future Ready Librarians framework; planning templates, checklists and resources to guide change; questions for discussion and challenges to put what you’ve read into action; and examples from the field.

  4. Flip this School: How to Lead the Turnaround Process

The tools and templates will help school leaders own their leadership style and set the foundation for a successful school turnaround.

  10. Education Reimagined: Leading Systemwide Change with the ISTE Standards

    Educational leaders play a central role in developing a culture of change and providing the conditions for innovation in schools, and that role varies by job title. District leaders make change across multiple schools, principals lead change across their schools and teacher leaders guide change within and across year levels. But no matter the role, a framework that identifies the knowledge and behaviours required for leaders to make student learning possible and for teachers to be empowered is a necessity. The ISTE Standards for Education Leaders offer a concrete framework to help leaders set goals and provide a vision for transformative systems change within educational institutions.
