  • Innovation
  • Why design it?
    Apple realized the need for their company to compete with other electronic devices.
    • Competition with netbooks or mini computers
    • Competition with electronic readers (Kindle)
  • Whose idea was it?
    In 2000, the “webpad” tablet was introduced at Comdex, it was not widely received. In 2010, Apple introduced their version of the “webpad” or tablet the “iPad”.
  • Why did the “webpad” fail?
    They ran into obstacles:
    Battery life
    Small video screens
    Awkward keyboards
  • Commercialization
    iPad has been targeted for people who use electric book readers such as Kindle and the Sony reader. Offering them more than just an electronic book reader. The price is slightly higher than the average netbook, but the touch screen is something most netbooks do not offer.
    iPad is also targeted for the use in education.
  • Commercialization Continued
    Schools receive grants to implement the use of iPad to replace class room text books.
    Apple is offering a 10% educational discount
    Apple is offering hundreds of educational applications to be download free of charge

  • Observability and compatibility
  • Critical Mass
    Critical mass “occurs at the point which enough individuals in a system adopt an invention and it becomes self-sustaining” (Rogers, 2003, p. 334).
    Critical mass for iPad occurred when New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education provide iPad Workshops.
  • Decentralized Diffusion……
    The use of technology with emphasis on the use of an iPad in the education is best diffused through a decentralized diffusion system. This will happen when, “innovations originate from numerous local sources and then evolve as they diffuse via horizontal network” (Rogers, 2003, p. 395).
    The educational system is divided into several areas: elementary, middle and high, each may diffuse differently based on the innovation and need “innovations originate from numerous local sources and then evolve as they diffuse via horizontal network” (Rogers, 2003, p. 395).
  • Key Change Agents
    “A change agent is an individual who influenced clients’ innovation decisions in a direction deemed desirable” (Rogers, 2003, p. 366).
    Key change agents include: teachers, media specialist, administrator and curriculum director who have adapted the use of iPad in education.
  • The use of the iPad in education is and will be influenced by others due to adaptors of change.
    According to Rogers (2003), “in many cases, adaptors serve as their own change agents in diffusing their innovation to others”(p. 395).
    Key Change Agents continued….
