This report presents findings from the authors’ examination of models of technology leadership in schools. Applying a framework of six types of decisions that influence the utilization of technology (e.g., goal setting, vision sharing), they surveyed school administrators, teachers, and technology coordinators from 898 schools in the United States about technology policy decisions. Findings from analysis of the survey responses identified the frequency of the adoption of different technology policies and the leadership characteristics of the school staff in those schools. Schools included in the study reported a wide variety of implemented technology policies and that strong school leadership had a positive effect on the effective adoption of technology programs.
