Factors Affecting Implementation
  • Cost
  • What to buy? How to maintain? How to update as
    needed?
  • Access and Allocation
  • Where is the technology housed? Who has access?
    When can it be used?
  • Training and Ongoing Support
  • Who is the provider? Who participates (e.g.,
    teachers and students)? When and where does it
    occur?
  • Effectiveness
  • How will you know if it improves student
    outcomes?
