Abstract: A Mid-Atlantic University partnered with the State Department of Education to conduct a three year mixed-methodology study to investigate professional development and technology integration in three elementary schools. This presentation will report on research results noting the factors that influence Technology Coordinator's ability to act as leaders with regard to classroom technology integration and recommendations to address the problems.
