This study was conducted to investigate the leadership strategies in enhancing the integration of information and communication technology in teaching and learning of public teachers’ colleges in Moshi district, Tanzania. The study was guided by Transformational Leadership Theory developed in 1978 by James McGregor Burns. The study employed a mixed research approach under which a convergent research design was used. The target population of the study was 03 public teachers’ college 03 principals, 103 teacher educators, and 768 teacher trainees which make the total population of 874. Probability sampling of simple random sampling and stratified sampling techniques was used to determine the study sample. Questionnaires and an Interview Guide were used as instruments for data collection. The reliability of quantitative instruments was established through Cronbach Alpha; (r=0.92 for teacher trainees’ questionnaires and r=0.90 for teacher educators’ questionnaires). The results show that the extent to which leadership strategies in enhancing ICT integration were reflecting on ICT leadership approaches of ICT modeling, supporting with ICT facilities, inspiring, and evaluating the integration of ICT were positively responded by teacher educators and teacher trainees which conform with transformational leadership theory. However, other leadership strategies in enhancing ICT integration on ICT practices such as team working, encouraging ICT use, motivating, and empowering use of ICT in teaching and learning were responded contrarily by teacher educators and teacher trainees. Because of the variation of responses from teacher trainees to teacher educators, the study concluded that the extent to which the role of leadership strategies used to enhance the integration of ICT in teaching and learning was less effective. The study recommends that principals' capacity building through seminars and workshops especially on transformational and technological leadership skills could help to improve management teams’ practices to enhance the integration of ICT in teaching and learning among teacher educators and teacher trainees.
