Abstract: 
Singapore has implemented two Masterplans
for Information Communication Technology (ICT) in
education over the last decade. This article examines
Singapore teachers’ perspectives of how leadership for
ICT implementation in schools is distributed among leaders,
by means of a survey conducted in 2007. The study
found that transformational and instructional leadership are
perceived to be distributed among multiple leaders
including Principal, Heads of Technology, and Heads of
Subject. Heads of Technology are viewed as performing
both transformational and instructional leadership activities
more frequently than the Principal or the Subject Heads.
The transformational leadership and instructional leadership
performed have a significant effect on the amount of
extra effort teachers put into their use of ICT.
