Eric Sheninger's Books
Eric Sheninger's books need to be read and re-read. I first picked up Digital Leadership when I was serving as a principal for a small rural school district in Southwest Wisconsin. His book was refreshing because I was doing many of this things he had written about. I especially liked that I could share the book one chapter at a time with those who were looking at me like I was crazy. Eric's books are powerful and easy to read. It is easy to see what actions to take because they are not hidden in commentary about theory. The why is obvious and for once, so are the actions necessary to develop a culture of learning and innovation.
Eric is a Senior Fellow and Thought Leader on Digital Leadership with the International Center for Leadership in Education. Prior to serving in this role, he served as the New Milford High School principal. It was in this role that Eric began blazing the digital leadership trails, and those who have crossed his path are better for it.
Doing things differently
Eric definitely despises excuses, and he doesn't hold back when he makes the demand that people stop making excuses for not doing what is best for kids. He is relentless in his pursuit to get people to step into the modern era of learning. In this interview we discussed how the National Ed Tech Plan makes great strides in shifting the national narrative surrounding modern learning, and it definitely strives to eliminate several of the excuses. Now, if we could only get more people to read it.
