Selecting course technology based on simple learning science objectives

Aaron Dewald, University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

With more and more technology choices available to faculty, the reasoning behind selection of a particular technology to be used in a learning environment must be sound.  Unfortunately, as technologists, we are more versed in the technology rather than the learning application. Knowing just a few simple learning science concepts can help frame your technology recommendations to faculty.  I aim to offer a practical implementation of Bloom's Taxonomy for technologists to help assist future implementations. Specifically, I aim to:

  • Cover a simple structure of learning science called Bloom's Taxonomy
  • Talk about "shiny object syndrome", an affliction many technologists have
  • Offer three practical examples of learning objectives influencing technology selection
