dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this inquiry study is to discover how district school administrators perceive the directorship skills needed for a successful technology director in Missouri. At this stage in the research, the skill needs will be defined as technological proficiencies, curriculum understanding design proficiencies, and the understanding on fitting both the previous skill sets to form solid growth plans for their districts through the lens of Mitzberg’s theory on organizations. The application of said technological proficiencies is a direct job function relating to the standardization of work objects, and fits with the Mintzberg definition of a job within the technostructure. Similarly, curriculum understanding of design proficiencies and how those apply is related to the function of standardizing skill flow and development within an organization; this fits the Mintzberg definition of a job within the support structure of an organization. This study is to examine how the directorship is seen through the lenses of a technical developer and through the lenses as an instructional designer by the district administrators of their organization. Essentially, as a nuts and bolts technician and/or as a person who is responsible for helping the faculty of a district effectively use the systems that the district has built.eng
