    12. 12. Implementation Stage November 2010<br />Comments from a middle school teacher<br />We have rolled out roughly 480 iPads to our students in K-12 and have found the impact to be pretty significant. It all came together in about 90 days which was a challenge, but well worth the effort. Apps to add may be iStudiez Pro (hwkappa) and studio pro a great art app (Smith, 2010).<br />http://www.ipadinschools.com/ipad-apps-for-middle-school/<br />
    13. 13. Implementation Stage 2010 <br /> Apps for High School<br />Math Quizzer – Math Quizzer is an interactive and fun way to, not only learn, but also to boost your skills in; Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division. It offers an easy to understand chalkboard visual, which keeps track of your “score” as you progress.<br />Literary Analysis Guide – Elements of literature are arranged graphically around three wheels (poetry, prose, and rhetoric).<br />http://www.ipadinschools.com/ipad-apps-for-high-school/<br />
    14. 14. Confirmation Stage 2010<br />A person evaluates the results of an innovation-decision already made<br />http://www.macgasm.net/2010/04/20/first-u-s-high-school-to-buy-ipads-for-their-students/<br />The iPad is more than just a home consumption device, and it transcends to the educational sector very nicely.  Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop High School has seen this, and has adopted the iPad in their school functions(Lagana, 2010).<br />It’s institutions like these that are the true visionaries of education.  They see how technology is becoming more and more a part of everyday lives.  Now it will be part of our educational lives too (Lagana, 2010).<br />
    15. 15. Communication Channels<br />Apple has been developing a school market for the iPad by working with textbook publishers on instructional programs and sponsoring iPad workshops for administrators and teachers. <br />http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/20110105_More_schools_embracing_ipad_as_learning_tool.html<br />The iPad was a highly anticipated item before its release date. <br /><ul><li>Steve Jobs presented it in a highly visible commercial.</li></ul>January 2010<br />
    16. 16.  <br />iPad S-curve Adoption Rate<br />
    17. 17. Key Innovators and Early Adopters<br />Technology & Media Specialists in the district<br />Leaders in the area of innovative technology<br />Usually train others <br />Computer Enthusiasts<br />People who like to stay abreast of new innovations<br />Like to be the first to show others<br />
    18. 18. Strategies for Persuasion<br />Offer training on the use of the iPad<br />Key people allowed to use them<br />Offer discount prices <br />
    19. 19. Bringing Laggards On Board<br /><ul><li>Educators who are resistant to change would be the laggards</li></ul> Strategies to use with them are:<br />Provide demonstrations of the applications<br />Individualized or small group training<br />Share comments from users in other locations.<br />Ex. “The Nerdy Teacher”<br />http://www.thenerdyteacher.com/2010/08/using-my-ipad-in-classroom-this-year.html<br />
    20. 20. Centralized Approach Suggested<br /><ul><li>The approach that would work best in this situation is the centralized approach because it works from the top down.
    21. 21. If Administrators decide to adopt, then others are expected to follow.</li></li></ul><li>Key Change Agents<br /><ul><li>Administrators
    22. 22. Technology & Media Specialists
    23. 23. Change agents may bring about positive social change by:</li></ul>Show the need for change<br />Diagnose problems<br />Establish guidelines to adopt the innovation<br />State a timeline for adoption<br />
    24. 24. Critical Mass<br />Critical mass occurs at the point at which enough individuals in a system have adopted an innovation so that the innovation’s further rate of adoption becomes self-sustaining (Rogers, 2003).<br />In the area of education, critical mass would probably occur sooner because of the centralized approach. Innovations are adopted from the top down.<br />
    25. 25. Champions<br />School administrators would define the need by showing how iPads could be used in the classroom.<br />iPads could save money over time. Textbooks are adopted every 7 years.<br />iPads can be updated as often necessary.<br />
    26. 26. Final Thoughts<br />The iPad is one of the most innovative tools for the classroom in decades. There are many engaging applications available for students and teachers. Textbooks are slowly becoming a rarity in the classrooms. iPads offer immediate updates to students. All over the country, school districts and universities are adopting this innovation.<br />
