Designing instruction centered upon one learning approach is not always practical because there are many different techniques students use when learning new material. Therefore, an educator or instructional designer needs to recognize the principles, concepts, and applications of various learning theories when implementing technology into the instructional setting. This paper provides an overview of three distinct learning theories commonly applied in the area of education and addresses their practical uses in technology application. First, the principles and implications upon teaching and learning of each theory are presented. Thereafter, each theory is followed by a summary describing its influences upon the way that technology can be utilized in instruction.
