Learning Technology

Learning technology is the systematic application of a body of knowledge to the design, implementation, management, and evaluation of teaching and learning. The body of knowledge, the fruit of research and practice, is based on principles of learning theory, instructional design and change management, but is grounded in an understanding of the underlying technologies and their capabilities. Thus:
  • learning technology is the use of a broad range of communication, information, and related technologies to support learning and teaching;
  • learning technologists apply, or support learning technology in practice, and/or undertake research relating to learning technology.
