Abstract

This paper draws on a range of internal research and external reports to discuss the relationship between school leadership and the impact of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in schools. Characteristics of school leadership and related decision-making processes are key determinants to the successful integration of ICT. While the Principal‟s role is important, having a leadership team that includes a curriculum leader who provides vision and support in the use of ICT is the most important component. The effectiveness of such a role depends on its connection with the leadership structure, the status of the person, and personal characteristics.
