Abstract

The current trends and needs in education across the globe require that leaders must think in unprecedented ways that focus on the present and future integration of technology. This requires school systems, and their leaders, to build vast technological infrastructures that include continuous hardware, software, and training updates. As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, educational systems across the world seek to find ways to address the needs of their current student populations while undertaking the daunting task of preparing for future technological needs that are uncertain and constantly advancing at rates most school systems find difficult to sustain. The chapter focuses on some of the current skills educational leaders employ to navigate the advancements in technology and education that are presently in practice while highlighting how they prepare the next generation of students with the next generation of digital tools required for their success.
