This paper describes information technology usage in a radically different school leader preparation program. Ed.D students at Wichita State University are immersed in a variety of technologies from the first day of class. A collaborative, situated, problem-based learning approach to instruction requires acquisition of high levels of personal comfort and expertise with program technologies, sufficient to allow students to be efficient in their own studies, and to mentor others in various aspects of advanced information technology usage. Students incorporate technology in their roles as participant, collaborator, colleague, leader and follower in a variety of contexts: seminar, field study, content presentation, data manipulation, research reporting, group/individual comprehensive examinations, dissertation. Program graduates acquire, among other things, an understanding of the impact of information technology on their roles as visionary leaders of schools of the future and experience the transformational potential of technology on their own learning process.
