External influencers of school leaders in rural Australia deploying and integrating ICT

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

A review of literature on primary and secondary school leadership prior to, during and after the national Digital Education Revolution in Australia. Various authors indicated that ICT impacted school leaders, while others looked at school leadership without highlighting ICT as significant. An initial analysis of literature using an ecological model of the school external environment raised key concepts across bureaucratic, political, professional and commercial categories relative to school leaders and ICT in rural schools. A method for identifying who school leaders perceive externally influence their decisions in deploying and integrating ICT is also presented. The findings of the proposed study should both be, useful for future research and, of interest for ICT and education professionals in the ecological environment of schools.
