A step-by-step guide to technology change

As we have seen, there are various models to support different approaches to technology change, but the goal is ultimately the same: to provide a better learning outcome for students. Indeed, Manako’s hierarchy of technology in schools has infrastructure at the base of the pyramid, working up through effective administration, extensive resources and enhanced teaching to achieve the pinnacle of empowered students.
So, practically speaking, how can your school reach the summit of this pyramid?
The Knoster model proposes that there are several elements required for successful change, with different negative outcomes if any of these elements are missing. These are:
