Abstract

This study focuses on the successes and challenges faced by superintendents identified as "technology-savvy" by a prominent monthly educational technology newspaper published for practicing educators. The superintendents in this study described their experiences overcoming common issues that many school leaders face when attempting to integrate technology into their districts. The themes that emerged were related to shared vision, infrastructure, communication, and professional development. The findings related to these major themes communicate the common ways that superintendents address these areas.
