  9. 9. Five things to ask about innovations<br />Is there a way to experiment without having to commit?<br />Do I understand what the innovation can do for me and how? <br />Will it be better than before? <br />Does the change affect my values of and beliefs about teaching and learning negatively?<br />Does using the innovation produce benefits that are visible to and valued by others?<br />9<br />(Rogers 2003)<br />
  10. 10. 2. Do I understand what the innovation can do for me and how? <br />Usability Issue<br />Innovation Issue<br />10<br />
