This is the essential question that Dr. Cook succinctly addresses in this handbook that is positioned to be an essential reading for any 21st Century leader.  His work details the power of connectivity to break down silos of information and get school leaders off isolated islands to improve professional practice and transform schools.  By weaving stories of how practitioners have benefited from connecting through social media, Dr. Cook presents the necessary ingredients for change that can be implemented immediately."
