Some Big Questions about Design in Educational Technology
Gibbons, Andrew S.
Educational Technology, v56 n4 p34-37 Jul-Aug 2016
This article asks five questions that lead us to the foundations of design practice in educational technology. Design processes structure time, space, place, activity, role, goal, and resource. For educational technology to advance in its understanding of design practice, it must question whether we have clear conceptions of how abstract conceptions are turned into physical artifacts capable of inspiring the intellect and the emotions to facilitate learning. These five questions hopefully supply topics for design conversations.
