Preparing Administrators for Connected Schools.
Ross, Tweed W.
New technology, in the form of electronic connectivity, has opened up vast new arenas for educational development. Many administrators, however, have not been prepared for the sudden change brought about by such technology. The problem for school administrators is how to lead effectively without being overcome by the new information technologies. This paper provides guidelines for administrators and administrator educators for organizing activities that will allow the effective integration of digital communication technology into school settings. It discusses the five important program elements of hardware, software, curriculum, staff development, and control over access. (Contains 19 references.) (LMI)
