In today’s world of technology, integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into education has become crucial. However, without teachers’ genuine efforts, it does not seem possible to effectively integrate technology in classroom practice. Teachers’ positive attitude towards educational technologies is considered to be essential for the integration of technology into teaching and learning. Research has also shown that principals’ technology leadership could be correlated with teachers’ integration of educational technology into classroom teaching. This study aims to explore the effect of secondary school principals’ technological leadership on teachers’ attitude towards educational technology. Data regarding principals’ technology leadership were collected using the “Technology Leadership Scale” developed by Sincar in 2009, and data regarding teachers’ attitudes towards educational technology were collected using the “Attitude Towards Educational Technology Scale” developed by Pala in 2006. The statistical analysis has revealed that principals’ technological leadership had little effect on teachers’ positive attitude towards the use of educational technologies and did not have a significant effect on their negative attitude.
