Open Ideas has undertaken a new program of work in partnership with Barbara Means and her team at SRI International: the Pearson | SRI Series on Building Efficacy in Learning Technologies.
This first volume provides a comprehensive overview about what the research says about efficacy in learning technologies. It also explores the importance of implementation of a given technology, and its impact on learner outcomes.
The authors argue that any learning technology must be understood as just one part of an instructional system, not as a learning intervention unto itself.
The paper lays out what research tells us about the effectiveness of learning technologies, and makes recommendations for identifying, planning, implementing, and evaluating them.
