Technology and Leadership

Well, it was great to be able to listen to everyone this evening.

As my fellow classmates are aware, my studies focus on the superintendent and instructional leadership - more specifically what organizational behaviors are used by superintendents to make instructional improvements (gains in student achievement) in school districts that have not been labeled academically successful in the past. It would be interesting to study how district leadership and support influence student outcomes and use of technology in the district.
