Abstract

Technology can become increasingly important in reaching its educational goals. Person in charge of administrative duties in school carry out and display leadership qualities in the school. This study was carried out with the aim of assessing what the opinions of the vocational school administrators about the profile leadership are. Semi-structured interview questions are used to increase the reliability of the work. This study was carried out qualitatively by using face to face interview technique with the administrators of 5 vocational schools randomly selected from 13 vocational schools. In order to allow the duplication of the work, it has been analyzed through content analysis with emphasis on creating predetermined questions. In the study, the qualitative-managerial case study was utilized in order that school administrators can understand what their views on technology leadership are and how useful they find their own institutions. As a result of the various findings, it has been revealed that the leadership of the school administrators participating in the research is influenced by the technology leadership in the development of the teaching and the skills of the students, and that their individual and professional developments can also be executed positively with the planned in-service courses.
