Towards Implementing Technologies in Education: Exploring the Pedagogy and People of Good Innovations
Ferdig, Richard E.
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v4 n2 Article 5 p35-43 Apr 2005
With the amount of research and research journals available on the subject, it may seem like we have established many "facts" and "truths" about technology and pedagogy. More realistically, the 'truth' is that we are only just beginning to learn within and about the young field of educational technology (understanding the adoption, use, and impact of technologies such as computers in education). One important question we now face relates to understanding what makes a good technological innovation in education. Drawing on past and present research, it is crucial to re-examine the roles of "pedagogy and people" (innovators, educators, and learners) in technology innovations. In this paper, I describe both processes in detail. I conclude with implications for research and practice.
