Abstract:

With rapid growth of technology, educational ecology has changed significantly, and therefore, it is important for schools to build a technology-based learning environment to survive the highly competitive educational market. As a result, teachers are required to possess knowledge and skills of integrating technology into their instruction, especially in the building of an effective class website, and the principal's supports are critical to the success of teacher's technological intention. This research is thus aimed to examine how principal's technological leadership may impact the effectiveness of their teachers' class website management. A questionnaire survey is adopted, and questionnaires will be administered to 500 junior high school teachers from 55 schools. Thereafter, structural equation model (SEM) will be used for data analysis. In fact, Keen (1988) points out integrating technology in to organizational leadership is critical for surviving the highly competitive markets. Drucker (1998) also comments that managers who possess the ability to adopt and adapt technological tools for gaining and allocating resources are beneficial to the organization's further development. Brooks-Young (2008) suggest that technological leadership is composed of three parts, which indicates that a leader has to promote her/his teachers and students to possess the ability of new technology, to enhance their use of technology, and to strengthen her/his own and their legal knowledge. Accordingly, this theoretical framework will be applied in the design process of this study. This is an on-going research project. The final findings will be available by March 2011, and will be presented in the 2011 CIES meeting.
