What is educational technology? There are a variety of definitions of educational technology.

What is instructional design and technology?

The Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT):

Educational technology is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources. [1]

The Encyclopedia of Educational Technology:

Educational technology is a systematic, iterative process for designing instruction or training used to improve performance. [6]

Educational Technology involves the disciplined application of knowledge for the purpose of improving learning, instruction and/or performance. [7]

History of the Definitions

Edtech’s [educational technology’s] definition has evolved over the years as a variation of ways of dealing with learning processes (2), a conceptual framework (9), theory and practice (5), and the latest study and ethical practices of dealing with technological processes and resources (1). [8]


Audiovisual communications is the branch of educational theory and practice concerned with the design and use of messages which control the learning process. It undertakes: (a) the study of the unique and relative strengths and weaknesses of both pictorial and nonrepresentational messages which may be employed in the learning process for any reason; and (b) the structuring and systematizing of messages by men and instruments in an educational environment. These undertakings include planning, production, selection, management, and utilization of both components and entire instructional systems. Its practical goal is the efficient utilization of every method and medium of communication which can contribute to the development of the learners’ full potential. [2]

🖱️We're in this Together!🖱️

As we embark on our temporary remote instruction time from November 30, 2020 to January 15, 2021 we appreciate that our teachers are working harder than ever to meet the needs of our learners. It is difficult to know what is needed in terms of Ed. Tech. support. However, we are updating as much as possible. The district now has Google Enterprise for Education which undoubtedly improves how we harness the teaching and learning for our courses. We're looking forward to what lies ahead!
