Abstract

Principals have important leadership roles in relation to teaching with ICT. Their approaches are inevitably influenced by personal beliefs. Using case study methodology, this study found that principals' beliefs reflected their long experience and were limited in their capacity to support new approaches to teaching with ICT. Three cases are described and a model, based on self-efficacy theory, for challenging principals' beliefs with alternatives is proposed as a guide to assisting school leaders in their response to ICT.
