Transformational Leadership and the Integration of Information and Communications Technology into Teaching

Wee Leng Ng

Discipline: Education, Information Technology, Communications




Information and communications technology (ICT) has now permeated nearly every facet of society and there is a growing need for school leaders to play a more active role in integrating ICT into teaching. While it is conceivable that transformational leadership, which has been found to be an essential form of leadership in dealing with challenges facing contemporary schools, has effects on efforts to implement school innovations such as ICT integration, to date no such study has been conducted. This study therefore field-tests a questionnaire designed to investigate teachers' perceptions of positive influence of transformational leadership practices on the integration of ICT into teaching.
