A Preliminary Study of School Administrators' Use of Information and Communication Technologies: Bruneian Perspective
Seyal, Afzaal H.
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v8 n1 p29-45 2012
The study surveyed 96 Bruneian primary schools administrators (principals) in using the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Out of the five subscales used to assess the ICT usage, only two: curriculum integration and need assessment were found to be significant towards the use of the ICT. The results further indicate that majority of the school administrators have intermediate level of computer expertise and possess an adequate computer literacy. The school administrators use ICT for administrative purposes; however, the use of technology across the curriculum is still at infancy stage. The study has found some major reasons for the lack of use of ICT across curriculum. The statistical significance t- tests, ANOVA and post-hoc comparison have found a difference in the mean of novice classification and of advanced level of computer expertise. Based upon the analysis some recommendations are made for the relevant authorities of the Ministry of Education, Brunei Darussalam.
