Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
Technology, one of the important factors that influence success in schools, should be planned and used effectively in schools. Technology planning is significant because it gives information about the current situation and of the target future goals as well as because the present technology should be used effectively. This study focuses on the roles of school principals who have the leading position in technology planning, its preparation and in its implementation, discusses whether their roles are efficient and investigates the inefficient points. This study was carried out with qualitative technique depending on the survey model. The study was carried out by interviewing a total of 5 coordinator school principals from 11 educational areas in Eskisehir. As a consequence of the study, it was revealed that the school principals were not authorized for technology purchase, that there is a need for a trainer teacher who will be made responsible for teacher training activities about technology, and that students are able to use technology.
