dc.description.abstractThis paper critically analyzed the school reform movement of technology integration from the campus leaders’ perspectives. Leaders need to be committed to this global change in order for students to be successful in the classroom. This mixed methods study involved the responses of 18 assistant principals and 11 principals from a suburban school district in Texas to an online survey. The survey allowed assistant principals and principals to reflect on their perspective of technology in education today, and barriers hindering an effective integration. An analysis of the data identified common themes among barriers and attitudes toward technology integration at the campus leadership level. Results determined 96.2% of participating campus administrators believed technology has changed the way of education. Results also revealed barriers of time, money, and teacher skill level. For student success, it is necessary to lead education with a rich technology connection.
