Emerging technology addaption

Assignment questions: As we have looked at some of these emerging technologies, what are your thoughts on the adoption process. Would you prefer your district be an early adopter, or wait for the data to prove its worth? If you are given leeway to use new technologies, will you be an early adopter or wait for the proof to come in?

I am the sort to wait until emerging technologies have proved themselves.  As a teacher, I will not want to learn how to use a new technology, only to discover through use that it is not useful to me, or not worth the time, money and effort that I have put into it.  Therefore, I would prefer a district that is similar, and if given my own leeway, I would wait till it had proven itself.
