UEN Homeroom
UEN Homeroom
Welcome to UEN Homeroom. This podcast is UEN’s chance to tell your stories and talk about the issues impacting Utah’s amazing teachers. We plan to feature educators and leaders from across the state of Utah in a fun and informative bi-monthly podcast.

This week we talk with Dr. Pablo Riboldi, Assistant Director of Instructional Design at Brigham Young University, about how and why technologies fail to get adopted. During our discussion we explore the four elements of diffusion in technology, the role that politics play in educational technology, and how social capital is just as important as technical skills with successful technology rollouts.
