Through the use of a wiki, according to Sandifer, a "paradigm shift" can occur. The shift we are experiencing today challenges us to create an entire new identity (or definition) of "teacher." Today effective educators are life long learners who guide students and challenge them. Educators, in other words, are a part of the team that is responsible for learning in the classroom. They can no longer be the sole voice of expertise and all knowledge, speaking from the scholar’s podium. —Sister Geralyn Schmidt, SCC, Wide Area Network Coordinator for the Diocese of Harrisburg
There's no doubt in my mind that Sandifer's Wikis for School Leaders will quickly become a quick reference guide for leaders interested in streamlining how they manage, organize interactions with staff, students, and community. —Miguel Guhlin, Director of Technology Operations, San Antonio Independent School District
Sandifer offers a throrough, practical guide to the creation and maintenance of wikis. Readers will appreciate the process outlines for constructing them and connect with the many examples. —Frank Buck, Frank Buck Consulting, Inc.
Administrators will find this text useful in facilitating the principles of democratic leadership through the use of a wiki to reduce bureaucratic hierarchies. —Ronald A. Styron Jr., Director, Gulf Coast Instructional Leadership Center, University of Southern Mississippi
