Two more items for bibliography

I, Sahin, Detailed review of Rogers' diffusion of innovations theory and educational technology-related studies based on Rogers' theory, The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET April 2006 ISSN: 1303-6521 volume 5 issue 2 Article 3

This looks at the four main elements in the diffusion of innovations. It also details the innovation-decision process and the stages within this which are: 
  • The knowledge stage
  • The persuasion stage
  • The decision stage
  • The implementation stage
  • The confirmation stage
There is also relative advantage and rate of adoption with stages detailed as well.

This was a very interesting read, there is a lot of useful information throughout but most of it that will be useful for my topic is centered around the innovation-decision process within the stages.

Department of Education, Training and Employment, Queensland Government. (2012). iPads in Special Education (trial report). Retrieved from http://education.qld.gov.au/smartclassrooms/enterprise-platform/elab/ipads/trials.html

Trial report of using iPads within the classroom for children with special education needs. The report states what they did, their results as well as information about the school, devices etc.

 This report will be very useful to refer back to, It has great information about what was trialled and what the findings were in relation to special education.
