Abstract

This study examines Leadership style, Organisational Learning and the use of ICT in the teaching learning process in secondary schools in the Kota Kinabalu Division, Sabah. Seven research questions and 26 hypotheses were formulated for examination. Three instruments in the form of questionnaires were developed to measure the three variables in the study. The questionnaires were distributed to 693 teachers from all the 37 schools in the Kota Kinabalu Division. Six hundred and fifty nine respondents or 95.1% returned the questionnaires. The data collected was analysed using the SPSS 17 package. The findings show that the teachers perceived their school principals display strong leadership (m=3.84, SD =.59), strong Transactional Leadership style (m=3.94, SD=.63), strong Transformational Leadership style (m=3.95, 50=.49), and strong ICT Leadership style (m=3.51, SD=.79). Organisational Learning was also strong (m=3.94, SD=.49). ICT use in teaching learning was at moderate level (m=2.99, 50=.95). The findings also show that there was a weak relationship between Leadership style and ICT use (r=.299, p<.01), a moderate relationship between Organisational Learning and ICT use (r=.330, p<.01) and a strong relationship between Leadership style and Organisational Learning (r=.643, p<.01). The relationship between Organisational Learning and leT use was stronger than the relationship between Leadership style and Organisational Learning. Leadership and Organisational Learning scores contributed to 12.5% variance of ICT use. (r=.354, p<.01). Based on the findings, recommendations were made for school principals and education officers.
