Geoffrey A. Moore in his book “Crossing the Chasm” argues that there is a gap between the early adopters and innovators of any technology and the mass market. Those willing to try new technologies are risk takers, while the rest of the population is much more conservative. Though the early adopters and innovators take the high risk, if their investment pays off, they are rewarded with high returns. Similarly, those who jump on an opportunity early stand to win big, while those who wait to see whether or not it will pay off enjoy fewer rewards.
With that in mind, what is your school’s strategy when it comes to the opportunity presented by the smart technology for education? How can you take advantage of this early phase of the technology trend – and reap the high rewards being enjoyed by early adopters?
When a trend emerges and starts to build momentum, you can capitalize on the opportunity by being proactive. But if you miss the wave, you can get caught in an endless catch-up cycle, which can prove fatal for some organizations.
Schools that have introduced technology in their administration and learning often report a significant growth in their revenue, customer base and customer loyalty.
Although there is no denying that it takes some work to restructure an entire school process around technology, however, schools that continued to use traditional methods will see a significant decline in population if they don’t embrace and incorporate technology into their administrative and teaching processes.
