Summary

For courses in Introduction to Educational Administration and Leadership. The fourth edition of Educational Leadership and Planning for Technology is designed to provide educators with both the theoretical and the practical considerations for planning and implementing technology, particularly computer applications, in schools. Basic concepts of technology and planning that use systems theory are presented. Emphasis is placed on the importance of the total application of technology as opposed to any individual component, be it hardware, software, facilities, personnel, or finances. This book is meant to form a foundation from which educators will provide leadership and become agents for realizing the powerful potential of technology in their schools.
