Diffusions of Educational Innovations
In-depth analysis of innovation development and adoption processes in educational organizations, including schools, universities, and training centers.
As a future-focused, progressive educator, I often take for granted the exciting advancements and development that technology had to offer my students - I jump in with both feet. This course helped me to understand that adoption of educational innovations occurs on a pathway, and that adopters exist along a spectrum. By better understanding the motivations and processes behind diffusions of innovations, I am better able to relate to my colleagues who may not be as enthusiastic as I am when it comes to exploring and implementing new technologies into their practice.
