Perceived Consequences of Adopting the Internet into Adult Literacy and Basic Education Classrooms
ARTICLE

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to use a component of Everett Rogers' theory of diffusion of innovations to understand adult literacy instructors' perceptions of the consequences of adopting the Internet into their classrooms. This study provides information about the types of consequences they saw and their perceptions about the desirability, predictability, and directness of those consequences. The results show that perceptions of consequences instructors experienced when they adopted the Internet were overwhelmingly positive. Most notable in the findings is that consequences are often unanticipated, yet desirable.
