Description

This research examined changes in administrators’ ideas about technology integration and technologyleadership while participating in an online professional development course. Eight administrators who were enrolled in a semester-long course participated in 16 discussion forums related to K–12 technologyimplementation issues. Pre- and postcourse surveys indicated significant changes in ideas about technologyintegration as well as methods used to support teachers’integration efforts. Analyses of interview and course discussion data suggest that administrators view technology leadership as a “shared responsibility” that requires both administrative skills and technical knowledge.
