Learning and Instruction at the Crossroads of Technology

Instructional design with technology has transcended far beyond learning with the use of conventional computers. The development of mobile, as well as multisensory technologies, immersive images, interactive devices, high resolution videos and graphics, and virtual reality allow the development of new instructional designs and tasks, enabling our community to address innovative questions. Further, new methods such as eye tracking and physiological measures offer the opportunity to investigate more deeply, and online, the processes of learning and instruction. Combined, this helps us to decide which directions to take at the crossroads of learning and instruction with technology. This is particularly important because the benefits of technology do not always seem to be related to the frequency of the use of computers in schools. Rather, it is the content and the design of the task, and also to the nature of the cognitive activities involved in the learning sessions that are most important.
