Lessons Learned for Improving Educational Technology Adoption During Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous Situations
Journal for Advancing Business Education
This case study explores how educational technology adoption during an emergency shift to remote teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic, links to the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and the Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition (SAMR) model. Faculty from two distinct departments of a small four-year private college described their educational technology adoption. Results indicated that urgency and a desire to serve students led the way for technology adoption. The college, colleagues, and students were the technology influencers. Zoom and Blackboard (Bb) were the most prevalent educational technologies used during the shift to remote teaching.
