Educational technology represents the application of knowledge for the practical purpose of learning. Michael Spector, a leading scholar who has written broadly on the subject of educational technology, suggests that we define it as “a technology that can help a person learn something” (Foundations of Educational Technology, 9). Educational technologies can represent a wide range of potential applications, including everyday items like pens, paper, books, or personal journals. We can broaden our understanding of educational technologies beyond computers, tablets, and smartphones to include applications such as self-check quizzes, video introductions, story boards, and online forums.
