Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore how technology innovations are sustained in an award-winning teacher education program. To fully explore this phenomenon, the strategies, challenges, and leadership requirements ill be examined. Using Activity Theory Framework (ATF) and Rogers' Diffusion of an Innovation Theory (R'DIT), the complexities accompanying human activity in sustaining technology innovations will be uncovered. In-depth case study methodology will be employed to conduct this single site case study. Semi-structured interviews, on-site observations, and document analysis will be the data collection strategies and to obtain triangulation of data sources. Interview data will be gathered from department chairs, project leaders, faculty, principals, technology coordinators, and local Area Educational Agency (AEA) consultants. The future of sustaining technology innovations rests on sustainable leadership.
