Abstract

This research aims to determine the relationship between technology leadership and the job performance of primary school teachers in Kuala Krai, Kelantan. A total of 170 respondents participated in this quantitative survey, consisting of 61 male teachers and 109 female teachers. Data of this study were collected using leadership instruments adapted from Omar et al. (2020), the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) 2009 standards, and a teacher job performance instrument from Atsebeha's Teacher’s (2016). SPSS version 26 was used to analyze data. The findings revealed that dimensions of technology leadership are at an extremely high level, similar to teacher performance. On the other hand, technology leadership has a very weak and insignificant relationship with teacher job performance (r =.081, p =.297, p>.05). Finally, stakeholders like headmasters, PPD, JPN, and KPM must pay attention to technology leadership since it has the potential to affect teacher job performance.
