Introduction
Educational leader committed to creating schools that work for kids. My work focuses on leading and learning in the digital age as a model for moving schools and districts forward. This has led to the formation of the Pillars of Digital Leadership, a framework for all educators to initiate sustainable change to transform school cultures.  As a result I have emerged as an innovative leader, best selling author, and sought after speaker.  My main focus is the use of social media and web 2.0 technology as tools to facilitate student learning, improve communications with stakeholders, enhance public relations, create a positive brand presence, discover opportunity, transform learning spaces, and help educators grow professionally.  Learn more at http://ericsheninger.com
