An Analysis of School Administration Levels and the Perception of Technology as a Collaborative Tool Using the IBM Change Toolkit
Save to My Collections
The purpose of this study was to examine the differences between School District Level Administrators and School Building Level Administrators in their perceptions regarding their knowledge of technology (collaborative and basic), the use of the Change Toolkit, a web based software designed to facilitate leadership development in the area of organizational change, and the capacity of the IBM Change Toolkit to facilitate change. An independent samples t-test was used to evaluate the differences. The variable Knowledge of Technology shows significant difference between administrators where District Administrators have a higher mean. No significant difference was found in the other two variables. In addition, a frequency analysis was performed. The percentage of District Level Administrators that reported being knowledgeable in their use of technology as a collaborative tool was higher than Building Level Administrators. This suggests that the collaborative nature of the IBM Change Toolkit is not fully realized by administrators as a whole.
