Defining Instructional Technology
My current understanding of the term "Instructional Technology" is that it is a growing field that seeks to integrate technology into all areas of teaching and or corporate venues. For our purpose as future educators, "Instructional Technology" can open the lines of communication between the teacher and his/her students when they are not in the classroom via teacher websites and blogs. Technology allows the teacher to use various mediums in order to adapt lessons to all learning styles (visual, audio, etc.) And technology can serve as a great assessment tool via PowerPoint Presentations or Digital Storytelling in which the students demonstrate their knowledge through these technological venues.
