This research examined changes in administrators' ideas about technology integration and technology leadership while participating in an online professional development course. Eight administrators, enrolled in a semester-long course, participated in 15 discussion forums related to k-12 technology implementation issues. Pre- and post-course surveys indicated significant changes in ideas about technology integration as well as methods used to support teachers' integration efforts. Analysis of interview and course discussion data suggests that administrators view technology leadership as a "shared responsibility" that requires both administrative skills and technical knowledge.
