How To Properly Integrate Education Technology - Edudemic

How To Properly Integrate Education Technology - Edudemic | Techyturner-EdTech PD | Scoop.it
Organizations will not change until the people within them are ready to change, and those people have differing attitudes towards change.
Techyturner's insight:

Why do schools roll out new programs or courses in small “pilot” groups? I would point at two reasons: the decision makers either (a) want to test the programs out first before deciding if the program is viable, sustainable, and worthwhile, or (b) they need key people to lead the way in the first year which will make full-scale adoption over time quicker and longer-lasting.
