Educational technology adoption models have not traditionally incorporated either teacher leadership or the complex systems in which teachers work. This article presents two frameworks for viewing online technologies and implementation practices within the complex interrelationships among key actors and parts of an educational system. The Learning/Adoption Trajectory and Systemic Sustainability models, developed in different lines of research, fit together to better explain the path to sustainable systems of teacher leadership in educational technology. New research and development projects help illustrate the models.
