This paper introduces the Instructional Technology Impact Matrix, a model to consider how systemic influences impact the use of instructional technology, and ultimately, learning. How the technical abilities and attitudes of administrators and other influential people in the hierarchy affect the instructional use of technologies in the American educational setting are discussed. The factor of autonomy in decision making and sphere of influence is also a factor in the Impact Matrix.
