A Study of the Diffusion of Ten Educational Products. An Evaluation of Communication and Subsequent Action With Respect to Educational Innovations in Ten Display Modules.
Sarbaugh, L. E.; And Others
Research was undertaken to evaluate the degree to which a program of exhibiting display modules of new teaching methods influenced the adoption of those methods. The study examined: 1) the prior adoption level of display visitors, 2) the amount of attention paid to different aspects of the displays, 3) the reactions to displays, 4) the ability of the modules to persuade teachers and administrators to adopt innovations, 5) the effectiveness of combining consulting sessions with the display modules, and 6) the sources of information people use to learn about these new methods. Results indicated that the displays and consulting sessions definitely promoted increased awareness and adoption of educational innovations. (LB)
