|Abstract:||The purpose of this study was to understand how teachers implement an innovation cluster that included an online workspace and a framework for a problem- based learning environment. The researcher focused on three progressive research issues during data structuring: 1) What factors in a teacher's school environments influence the implementation of an innovation cluster? 2) How does a teacher's participation in collaborative professional development influence the implementation of an innovation cluster? 3) How does a teacher's belief about learning and technology influence the implementation of an innovation cluster? Using Activity Theory for apriori structuring of the data set and these three progressive issues for invivo analysis, the researcher found that the teachers implemented the innovation cluster in relation to their ability to identify and overcome contradictions in their work activity.|
