Understanding the Technology Adoption Curve
First identified by Geoffrey A. Moore in his book “Crossing the Chasm,” the theory of the Technology Adoption Lifecycle focuses on the bell curve caused by groups of individuals distinguished by their willingness to embrace change. Within this curve, there is a chasm. If this chasm cannot be crossed, technology implementations often fail. This diagram helps school leaders recognize these groups and provides information on how to meet the unique training and support needs of individual learners at each stage of adoption.
