The Degree of Kindergarten Principals’ Practice of Electronic Administration in Light of the COVID-19 Pandemic from the Point of View of Parameters (Case Study in Jordan)


Amal Sarayrah

This study, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, attempts to assess the adoption of e-management by the principals from kindergartens in the Karak Governorate. This is evidence of how leadership in education has been changing through digitization at this juncture. However, this study does bring forth practical implications of how this technology could be integrated into the administration of kindergartens and further influence future policy and practice shaping in early childhood education. This study used an effective, valid, and reliable scale to measure the level of electronic management used by 225 kindergarten teachers from the public and private sectors in Karak Governorate. The study further found that teachers view the level of electronic management practices in the organization as moderate, and there is no significant difference in age (5 to 10 years) and educational qualifications. Among the identified factors influencing the adoption of e-management practices, however, comprise years of experience, level of education, and employment in the private sector. This was fundamental research for understanding electronic management in kindergartens under a crisis in health, which could not be managed even at the national level. The need for and value for adaptation to technological advancements in settings with children and education are underlined.
