Chris Lehmann and I submitted our book to the publisher yesterday:

Take a look at the chapter contributors below and you’ll see why [and before you ask, yes, there were many others that we could have asked and, yes, we had to make some difficult author/topic choices given the space limitations of a printed book].
The book is intended to help administrators
- gain a basic knowledge base,
- think critically about some key issues, and
- get some concrete suggestions for instructional and organizational uses of various digital technologies.
Chris and I will keep you posted as this gets closer to print!
