The Influence of Technology on Communication for School Leaders: Preferences, Beliefs, and Use
Young, Suzanne; Berube, William; Perry, Suzanne
Planning and Changing, v39 n1-2 p81-97 2008
The value of good communication practices in schools is important to their overall operation and to how efficiently and effectively teachers and students perform (Sobel & Ornstein, 1996). The challenge of communicating as often as needed and with the appropriate method is ever present for the school administrator, in particular. Communication among school leaders, staff, and community has certainly experienced changes caused by technology such as email, personal digital assistants (PDAs), cell phones, websites, and others. The present study examines communication within the context of technology, and specifically how school leaders in Wyoming are using technology to communicate with their school staff and communities.
