Building a Culture of Innovation: A Case Study in Digital Integration
VonBank, Anthony H.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Minnesota State University, Mankato
This case study dissertation examines the implementation of digital technology in a mid-sized public school district in southern Minnesota. The methodology involved unstructured interviews and close observation of several teachers, administrators and related staff in the junior-senior high building. These observations were presented in informative vignettes that help to tell the story of the culture of innovation in this school, as well as highlight some of the implementation strategies that aid this school and district in meeting its goal to meet all learners in a 21st century society. The study identifies common barriers such as staff resistance, funding, and technology equity among students, as well as identifying some positive strategies that have met these challenges in an effective way. The resulting information paints the picture of a district that uses digital technology to build an innovative culture.
