    development and exchange.
  • Educational technology as the theory and practice
    of educational approaches to learning.
  • Educational technology as technological tools and
    media, for instance massive online courses, that
    assist in the communication of knowledge, and its
    development and exchange. This is usually what
    people are referring to when they use the term
  • Educational technology for learning management
    systems (LMS), such as tools for student and
    curriculum management, and education management

  • Educational technology is a wide field.
    Therefore, one can find many definitions, some of
    which are conflicting. Educational technology can
    be considered either as a design science or as a
    collection of different research interests
    addressing fundamental issues of learning,
    teaching and social organization. Official
    Definitions The Association for Educational
    Communications and Technology, the professional
    society for ET, defines it as Educational
    technology is the study and ethical practice of
    facilitating learning and improving performance
    by creating, using, and managing appropriate
    technological processes and resources. As a
    field, educational technology emphasizes
    communication skills and approaches to teaching
    and learning through the judicious use and
    integration of diverse media. Scholars in the
    field examine the uses of innovative media and
    technologies for education, examining all aspects
    from direct student learning to management and
    impacts on institutions.

The 5 Keys to Educational Technology-
  • 1. Considered implementation.
  • 2. Appropriate tools, techniques, or processes.
  • 3. Facilitate the application of senses, memory,
    and cognition.
  • 4. Enhance teaching practices.
  • 5. Improve learning outcomes.

The Scope of Educational Technology-
  • 1. Determination of Objectives
  • 2. Improvement in Teaching Learning Process
  • 3. Development of Teaching Learning Material
  • 4. Improvement in Teaching Training
  • 5. Development of Teaching Learning Strategies
  • 6. Proper Use of Audio Visual Aids
  • 7. Utilization of the Sub-System of Education
  • 8. Development of Curriculum
  • 9. Proper Use of Hardware and Software
  • 10. Provides Feedback

The Advantages of Technology in Education
  • 1. Promotes independent learning in students-
  • The internet is a treasure trove of information.
    Practically anything you need to know can be
    found online.
  • 2. Prepares students for the future-
  • From the way technological advancements are
    going, it is obvious that the future will be
    digital and technology-focused. If students are
    well-versed on using technology to collaborate
    and communicate as early as now, they will not
    have trouble fitting in, competing and finding
    jobs in the future.
  • 3. Has the potential to lower textbook and
    tuition prices-
  • With resources more accessible and in great
    abundance, the cost of textbooks is likely to

  • 4. Allows teachers to create an exciting way to
    educate students-
  • Gone are the days when the only tools for
    teaching are limited to books, a blackboard or
    whiteboard, and a chalk or markers. With
    technology integrated to education, teachers can
    now incorporate images, videos and other graphics
    when delivering lessons.
  • 5. Encourages development of new teaching
  • Rather than spend an hour or so talking while the
    students listen, or have them read an entire
    chapter in silence, teachers and professors now
    have the option to use advanced teaching methods,
    such as podcasts, blogs and social media.
  • Technology also presents universal tools that
    enable teachers to educate all types of students,
    including those who are struggling or have
    special needs. These include voice recognition,
    text-to-speech converter, translator, volume
    control, word prediction software and other
    assistive technologies.

Disadvantages of Technology in Education-
  • 1. Results in a lack of interest in studying-
  • Because everything is now accessible online or
    through data saved in a computer or mobile
    devices, students are likely to develop poor
    studying habits and a lazy attitude towards
  • 2. Makes students vulnerable to potential
  • While computers prove to be an invaluable
    educational tool, it can also be a source of
    problems. This is especially true for students
    who lack the skills needed to maximize a devices
  • 3. Negative views on technology-
  • Consumerism has taught us that technologies, from
    computers to mobile devices, are widely viewed as
    tools to entertain rather than educate.

  • The timing has never been better for using
    technology to enable and improve learning at all
    levels, in all places, and for people of all
    backgrounds. ... Learning dashboards and
    collaboration and communication tools can help
    connect teachers and families with instantaneous
