Educational Technology for the Mainstream: A Call for Designing for Simplicity and Reliability
Norris, Cathleen; Shin, Namsoo; Soloway, Elliot
Educational Technology, v47 n3 p6-9 May-Jun 2007
This article proposes three guidelines for mobile technology design that address the needs and goals of teachers who are considered mainstream with regard to technology use. Devices should be easy to learn and use, focused on the curriculum, and instruction-friendly. Only if the three guidelines are followed by hardware and software developers will there be technology use by mainstream teachers en masse. (Contains 3 figures.)
