What is Technology in Education?

In education, instructional technology is "the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources for learning," according to the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) Definitions and Terminology Committee. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_in_education

  • Which are the different learning styles?
  • Educational psychologists have described three basic types of learning styles:
  • visual (through a multi-sensory approach, using graphics, color and
  • movement)
  • auditory (lecture-style instruction)
  • kinesthetic (build knowledge on hands-on experiences)
  • (Gillard, S., & Bailey, D.,2007, p. 87).
