`This is an exceptional book. It tempted me to throw out most of my collected works on the management of change, because the author has somehow succeeded by including almost every aspect of educational change that any practitioner would wish to consider....Overall this is a very stimulating book. It is packed with information and the ideas and concepts contained could pack a school development plan for many years' - School Leadership and Management The theories and practices from the literature on business, manufacturing and commerce which inform principles for managing change in education are identified in this book.The author shows how the complexity of change can be addressed effectively. One principle of effective management of change is its potential to empower the individuals and organizations, its power to create and operate win/win situations. That can only be done by addressing the human side of organizations. The strength of the business literature is that far from advocating the austere, over-rationalized, dehumanized and objective pursuit of profit at all costs, it suggests that the effective management of change is an affirmation of the humanity of business.

`The Third Edition of an excellent book and is usefully updated to include the greater significance of the global contest of management, and in particular Tony Bush has consciously updated reference material. This, like all Tony Bush's work, is an essential reading for students following higher degree courses in the area of management studies in education, and increasingly those social policy students on higher degrees with an education option' - John L Doyle, The International Journal of Educational Management In summary, this book makes an excellent contribution to the current debate on Management and Leadership from a theoretical point of view. It provides an important resource for many aspects of management and leadership development programmes at a variety of levels. Its ability to draw upon international perspectives along with examples beyond conventional educational parameters enhances its quality. The book contains a well documented account of how leadership has been studied which will appeal both to the academic reader, and to the professional provider of CPD in leadership, offering a wealth of information that can be practically adopted and adapted for a range of courses' - British Journal In-Service Education In this established bestselling text (previous title Theories of Educational Management), Tony Bush presents the major theories of educational management and links them to contemporary policy and practice. This fully revised Third Edition includes two important changes in content. First, the book takes account of the increasing interest in the concept of leadership. Leadership continues to be one of the major criteria used to differentiate the models but there are now explicit links between educational management theories and the main models of leadership. The second change is that, in this edition, the author applies the models to a range of international contexts, including both developed and developing countries. This change relates to global interest in concepts of leadership and management and to an increasing recognition of the need to customize theory and practice to each context and culture rather that adopting a `one size fits all' approach. This text is essential reading for students of educational leadership and management as well as for headteachers and managers in education.

The New Meaning of Educational Change, Fifth Edition is your comprehensive textbook on all aspects of the management of educational change—a powerful resource for everyone involved in school reform. “In this Fifth Edition, Michael Fullan shares the wisdom that he has accumulated over more than 3 decades as to the specific actions that can be taken at the school, district, state, and national levels for overcoming those challenges. It should be required reading for all educators.” —Richard DuFour, educational author and consultant “Few people can match Michael Fullan’s depth and breadth of experience with real change in education. Updating his classic text, The New Meaning of Educational Change could not come at a better time given the rolling wave of rethinking Industrial Age education around the world.” —Peter Senge, senior lecturer, MIT Sloan School, founding chair, Society for Organizational Learning “In this Fifth Edition, Michael Fullan offers practitioners, policymakers, and researchers secure guidelines for the next decade. Fullan once again proves that he is the doyen of education change workers.” —David Hopkins, professor emeritus, Institute of Education, University of London

Education and Technology for a Better World was the main theme for WCCE 2009. The conference highlights and explores different perspectives of this theme, covering all levels of formal education as well as informal learning and societal aspects of education. The conference was open to everyone involved in education and training. Additionally players from technological, societal, business and political fields outside education were invited to make relevant contributions within the theme: Education and Technology for a Better World. For several years the WCCE (World Conference on Computers in Education) has brought benefits to the fields of computer science and computers and education as well as to their communities. The contributions at WCCE include research projects and good practice presented in different formats from full papers to posters, demonstrations, panels, workshops and symposiums. The focus is not only on presentations of accepted contributions but also on discussions and input from all participants. The main goal of these conferences is to provide a forum for the discussion of ideas in all areas of computer science and human learning. They create a unique environment in which researchers and practitioners in the fields of computer science and human learning can interact, exchanging theories, experiments, techniques, applications and evaluations of initiatives supporting new developments that are potentially relevant for the development of these fields. They intend to serve as reference guidelines for the research community.

Knowledge of the processes of educational change is said to be the missing ingredient in attempts to bring about educational innovation and reform. Whether these efforts involve grass roots innovation or large-scale societal reform, failure to understand and act on existing knowledge of the change process has accounted for the widespread lack of success in making educational improvements. This volume analyzes what is known about successful or productive change processes, and identifies corresponding action strategies at the individual, school, local and state levels. Included in this book is a major treatment of the topic of the 'ethics of planned change', a neglected topic in recent literature, especially since strategies for intervening in the change process are receiving more attention. This book is intended to be used by teachers in training and in service, teacher trainers, educational researchers, education historians and administrators.
