Abstract (Summary)

Presently, there is a lack of specific information concerning what skills Missouri public school administrators require in the area of technology in regard to the 2009 International Society for Technology in Education - National Education Technology Standards * Administrators (2009 ISTE-NETS*A). This study gives insight to the degree of implementation of the 2009 ISTE-NETS*A and other factors. All Missouri public building level school administrators were invited to participate in the study through an anonymous survey, of which 183 administrators responded. Descriptive statistics and ANOVAs were used to determine the results. The results of the study found that Missouri public elementary administrators had an overall high degree of implementation of the five ISTE-NETS*A (2009) with the following means out of 5: Visionary Leadership 3.56, Digital Age Learning 3.69, Professional Practice 3.77, Systemic Improvement 3.66, and Digital Citizenship 3.83. In regard to the building level at which they administer, since the F value of F = 0.47 had a probability value of p = 0.623, the null hypothesis was rejected in favor of the alternate hypothesis. Meaning, the building level administrative position of elementary, middle, or high school does not have an impact on the implementation of the 2009 ISTE-NETS*A. In regard to the age of the administrator, since the F value of F = 2.26 had a probability value of p = 0.107, the null hypothesis was rejected in favor of the alternate hypothesis; therefore, the younger the age of an administrator, there was not a higher implementation of the ISTE-NETS*A (2009). The results of this study is timely, important, and indicate that Missouri public school administrators would benefit from specific training focused around technology integration into schools, which is identified.
