Technology's Achilles Heel: Achieving High-Quality Implementation
Hall, Gene E.
Journal of Research on Technology in Education, v42 n3 p231-253 2010
An inherent characteristic of technology education is the continual development of new technologies and creating innovative applications of already existing technologies. As exciting as these innovations can be, technology educators and school staffs are frequently challenged to accomplish high levels of implementation. The metaphor of the Implementation Bridge and four research-based constructs of the Concerns Based Adoption Model are introduced in this article. Each can be used to evaluate the extent of implementation and as diagnostic tools for facilitating implementation. Each also can be applied in studies of relationships between extent of implementation and student outcomes. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
