Indonesia's school principals have low competence in information technology and communication involved in learning instructions. This finding was highlighted by recent AUSaid research on school leadership in Indonesia that surveyed school principals, supervisors, teachers and leaderships of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Religion. AUSaid recommended for Indonesian government to provide professional development programs to prepare schoolteachers who are selected to be school principals -- this training will involve IT skills as well as other competencies that go beyond classroom instructions, i.e. evaluation, planning, teacher supervision.
