Summary:
Technology is interwoven in many aspects of society and has become an integral part of education. Teachers are expected to provide authentic learning opportunities for students and prepare them to function in a society that has become technologically dependent. The institutionalization of technology can only take place if school leaders provide an environment supportive of teacher communication and collaboration with peers. The creation of an interdependent culture built on a shared vision of academic success for all students and professional growth of teachers are critical components of such an environment. This quantitative correlational study examines the relationship between school culture and K-12 teachers' level of technology implementation and provides suggestions to school leaders desiring to increase teaching innovation and create a culture of inquiry for both teachers and students.
