Reflections of School District Technology Leaders on the Implications of the New Technologies for Educational Leadership, 7(19)
AbstractThis paper reports the results of a focus group interview of technology-integration leaders to identify the leadership issues which influence the integration of technology in schools. The participants discussed questions that focused upon the relationship between ICT technologies and educational leadership. Qualitative analysis of these discussions indicated the participants agreed that leadership is a very important but misunderstood determinant of successful ICT integration. The report concludes that effective technology integration requires a new approach to leadership. It requires the integration of leadership at each and every level of organizations to attain the objectives of those organizations as integrated wholes.
