What Is Educational Technology

  • The official term coined by the AECT is the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources for learning.

Why Do We Study Educational Technology?

  • Educational technology allows the teacher to determine how to best integrate technology with the various learning styles that would be effective in teaching every student in the class.


  • Believe that learning is a passive process
  • Students learn based on responses to their environment
  • Learning is not a mental activity
  • Focus on learning as a mental operation
  • Behavior is viewed as an indicator of cognitive processes rather than just an outcome
  • Explain learning in terms of how one thinks.
  • Knowledge is a constructed element resulting from the learning process
  • Knowledge is based on one’s experiences
