Can you get school teachers to adopt an innovation?
Try strategies, and see what happens. How many adopters can you get?
Play the Diffusion Simulation Game as many times as you like, and learn what it takes! You need to think strategically and pay attention to what happens after each move. The first time you play could take an hour or more. Subsequent games take less time. Experienced players often take 30 minutes to complete a game.
Warning: Successful diffusion of innovations is challenging, requires persistence, and sometimes appropriate strategies do not work . The Diffusion Simulation Game emulates this complexity and uncertainty. It is based on empirical research, modeling typical success rates for diffusion activities under real-life conditions. If the DSG is too hard for you, try simpler versions with increasing levels of difficulty (requires Flash player, and will not work on iPhones or iPads). Also, you should read a brief summary of research (PDF) on diffusion strategies that work.
