How do you get tech-resistant teachers to embrace change? - Peter West, eSchool News

Many millions of dollars have been wasted over the years by the well-intentioned, but ad hoc, introduction of technology into education. Eager tech savvy teachers or administrators may jump in feet first, but a significant portion of their colleagues are left struggling along or resisting the change. The results of well-planned, long-term implementations, however, can produce momentum. When even reluctant adopters are given support, training, and time, positive changes can occur. Teachers are similar to other groups in society. They follow the “Diffusion of innovation” graph as proposed by Everett Rogers. http://www.eschoolnews.com/2015/07/14/embrace-change-792/
