The report by Anderson and Dexter serves to summarize the linkages between technology leadership and the factors that support goals for learning and teaching with technology. The authors conclude that more studies are needed to define how technology leadership and resources combine to optimal effect on learning. Of interest to me is that this study was dated 2005 and Seng-Chee's work ( provided under this collaboration heading) dated 2009 also recognizes that more data is required to pinpoint the collaboration between leadership and resources and supports. Anderson and Dexter also highlight that the rapid advancements in technology create a significant challenge in supporting leaders. Add to this the uneven distribution of supports and this , in my view, leads to the point where this project starts in that how can a technological tool support leaders regardless of what their experience and training ( support) has been?
