Leaders are essential for schools to realize the full potential of how IT can support teaching and learning. This section addresses how IT leaders might use their authority and expertise to foster IT integration through routines and tools to directly influence the role IT plays in schools, and exercise indirect influence by engaging, preparing, and supporting other leaders and teachers to contribute to the IT use in a school.
