Learning and Instructional Technologies for the 21st Century
Visions of the Future
Learning and Instructional Technologies for the 21st Century gathers research which identify models and approaches to improve learning through the inclusion of technology. These papers, from leading researchers and thinkers in instructional technology, begin by refuting the idea that education can be improved through more or better technology. Instead, the contributors emphasize specific, research-based ideas, which re-evaluate learning, reorganize schools, redirect technology, and provide instruction.
Acknowledging the critical role of technology, these contributions explore technology's main advantage--its ability to enable advanced learning designs and emerging paradigms as well as to evolve learning interactions. While each paper explores a specific aspect of the role of technology, the collection shares this common theme. Without sufficient consideration to the process of learning and its many facets, technological availability alone will not provide a sustained impact on the educational process.
Originating from the first AECT Research Symposium, Learning and Instructional Technologies for the 21st Century will be of interest to researchers and practitioners alike.
