What is the connection between technology and learning? Do students really learn more in technology-enhanced environments? How does teaching change when technology is introduced? Designing Instruction for Technology-Enhanced Learning addresses the gap between technology skills and the application of those skills in teaching and learning. Authors in this book will guide the reader from focusing on technology to focusing on the goals of using technology to facilitate the teaching and learning experience. Recommendations and practical advice on how to match teaching strategies with supporting media technology are also provided.

Reviews and Testimonials

Rogers has collected an interesting set of articles to help teachers use "technology to enhance teaching and learning, rather than simply adding technology to prepared lectures." The essays include information most appropriate for preservice teachers with little knowledge of basic theoretical concepts and for others (including practicing educators of those who are more computer literate) with an advanced knowledge of computer technology. The sections include information about instructional design, including an overview and foundations, along with specific suggestions for designs for K-12 schools and a separate section for higher education designs. All chapters are easy to read—although some do require relatively high levels of technology literacy—and charges and diagrams aid in understanding the concepts. The chapters end with reference lists, and one even includes and extensive list of Web site. The volume focuses on theoretical, supporting facts, rather than just explaining design features. Constructivism is a common theme throughout, as is the need for effective integration of technology. Recommended for library collections serving undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals.
