2. IMPORTANCE OF PLAY IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATIONEffective leadership in 2015 will demand a global perspective demonstrated through local action. Leaders will require knowledge of myriad cultures and even the ability to speak another language or two.

BREAKING DOWN THE DIFFUSION AND IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS Rogers (2003) notes there are six stages in a proposed innovation-development process. These six stages are: ~ Recognizing a problem or need ~ Basic and applied research ~ Development ~ Commercialization ~ Diffusion and Adoption ~ Consequences 12.

DIFFUSION AND ADOPTIONRogers (2003) notes the five attributes for adoption of innovations are: ~ Relative Advantage: How much is the innovation perceived as being better than what already exists ~ Compatibility: How well does the innovation match existing norms, values, needs, expectations and previous experiences ~ Complexity: How easy is the innovation to use and understand for users?~ Trialability: How easy is the innovation to try out and experiment with and not have to commit fully. ~ Observability: How easy is it to observe the advantages achieved from adapting the innovation?
