Findings: Secondary school heads in Botswana are beginning to accept computers and notions of transformational leadership; however computer anxiety, feelings about lack of computer usefulness and ease of use, and leadership issues such as lack of school libraries are also evident. Positive correlations exist between perceived ease of use of computer to some leadership constructs.

Abstract: This paper examines the transformational leadership qualities of school principals and compares those to adoption of information technology in Botswana secondary schools. Based on the development of a new research instrument and qualitative open-ended questions, data about computer acceptance, the role of the school library in the integration of computers in the school, and transformational leadership was collected.
