The current economic theory of innovation mainly analyses the technology factor and its impact on economic growth in today's world, growth in information technology and knowledge of new ideas has altered the business paradigm dramatically. Abstract this paper discusses how the theories of innovation diffusion have been incorporated into the field of instructional technology the paper begins with a brief description of general diffusion theory that includes mention of the four most commonly discussed diffusion theories. Overview of the diffusion of innovations according to rogers (1996), diffusion refers to the process by which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system. Diffusion of innovation is a theoretical model that seeks to explain how new ideas and technologies become cultural norms the theory was created by everett rogers as a five-step process.
