Abstract—Technology leadership drives the technology integration program of any educational institution. School administrators take challenging tasks in integrating technology in the classroom. Their roles are critical to ensure that students’ learning in today’s context is globally relevant. Relatedly, this study examined the technology integration leadership of school administrators involved in a school-wide initiative via a three-module series seminar workshop on action research using descriptive qualitative research approach. A thematic analysis of the written abstracts provided an overview of the technology leadership of school administrators. Specifically, results revealed four technology related themes namely; School Policy Development, Professional Development of Teachers, Blended Learning Approach, & Teaching Strategies to Enhance Learning. Further research focusing on each theme is recommended to determine its impact to the actual teaching and learning implementation in the school.
Index Terms—technology leadership, technology integration, action research, school administrators, professional development, school policy development, blended learning approach, teaching strategies
