Punished by innovation: The need for better focus on IMPLEMENTATION of educational technologies

Posted by Mark K. Warford, Ph.D. on October 13, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Nearly  two decades ago, educational innovation researcher, Gene Hall (1995), warned of a growing "development-implementation balance". The pace of innovation in educational technologies, on top of the increased accreditation and accountability demands placed on P-12 teachers and higher ed. instructors, suggests a need to slow down and think through the consequences of adoption decisions.

While it has been rightly criticized as a theoretical framework that is prone to determinism,…

As a K12 teacher in my formative years, I remember taking education courses while I was teaching high school French to complete my masters. These were required for NYS certification as well as tenure. Like most young teachers, my first years in the classroom were filled with daily, "urgent" needs to have lessons and materials prepared for my students. When I would go to my… Continue
