Learning to See Differently: Viewing Technology Diffusion in Teacher Education through the Lens of Organizational Change
Journal of Educational Technology Systems Volume 34, Number 1, ISSN 0047-2395
While the discussion on the topic of technology diffusion in teacher education primarily centers on course design, program development, and faculty technology training, this article explores technology diffusion from the perspective of organizational change. Technology diffusion in teacher education is a multi-faceted task and, therefore, requires multi-dimensional approaches. Systemic technology diffusion involves a paradigm shift in thinking about organizational change. The balance of this article applies this paradigm shift to analyze some seemingly puzzling phenomena that has occurred in the technology diffusion process and, thus, to help leaders of IT change initiatives to increase the chances of successful implementation.
