Technology Leadership among School Principals: A Technology-Coordinator’s Perspective

Chien-hsing Wang

Abstract


This paper describes how the principal’s leadership impeded the process of technology-integration in an elementary school through the viewpoints of the technology- coordinator. First of all, the principal did not have a vision of technology integration for school education. Neither did he make a commitment on technology integration. Second, the principal did not take up the responsibility for managing resources for technology implementation.  Neither did he show support for the technology coordinator as regards coping with administrative conflicts. Finally, the principal did not empower the technology coordinator for technology integration. All of these frustrated the technology coordinator and hindered the effective implementation of school-wide technology integration.
