SponsorshipStudy financed by an R&D project in the area of Education Sciences Management entitled ‘Learning-Focused Leadership and its Impact on Improvement: Practices and Results in Secondary Education’, under the Subprogram for basic, non-oriented research projects.

This study performs a content analysis of the communication that develops in online educational situations. It focuses on two aspects of communication in a context in which we observe instructional leadership: how leadership is seen in the virtual classroom and how teachers view their role. The study attempts to answer the question of how teachers lead this methodological change, that is, instructional leadership at the service of distributed leadership. The study analyses the online interaction and teachers’ reflections on the communication between teachers and students in the process of virtual teaching, specifically in post compulsory secondary education in Spain.
