Technology in schools has become quite commonplace. It is essential that principals possess knowledge and proficiency in technology skills and technology integration in order to be effective instructional leaders. As the critical issues transform from access to effectively integrating technology into curriculum, there has been little research and discussion concerning the extent to which technology leadership behaviors identified in the NETS-A standards from ISTE are being implemented in elementary schools. The purpose of this study is to determine to what extent elementary principals employ behaviors that support their role as a technology instructional leader, using the framework of NETS-A Technology Standards for Administrators from ISTE. This study informs professional development needs in regards to technology skills and technology integration of principals. A conceptual framework of what encompasses effective technology leadership in elementary schools is presented.
