Preface
This essay is intended to serve as a guideline for HR managers in schools who are aiming to assist educational leaders as a strategic partner in the process of change to achieve a successful ICT especially Tablet implementation. Several researches have been published about the need for change management and knowledge management skills in this field, but without appropriate “IT awareness” HR managers and educational leaders will not be able to manage the implementation plans and change process needed for successful tablet integration. IT is the primary driver of change today and change impacts people. HR managers don‟t need IT skills all they will need is “Behavioral IT” skills. The knowledge about “Behavioral IT” is used to cover human behavioral issues in IT driven transition, this can also help in managing change and knowledge to overcome the resistance and challenges people will face according to this IT driven change.

Keywords: HR, Tablet integration, school, IT awareness, Behavioral IT, IT driven change.
