There are several notions of educational technology. Among them are: Educational technology is a systematic way of designing, implementing and evaluating the overall process of learning and learning in the form of specific learning objectives, based on research in learning theory and communication in humans and using a combination of human and non-learning resources To make learning more effective. Thus, since the 1970s, there has been a view that humans (in this case teachers) are not the only source of learning.
According to Tom Cutchall (1999) educational technology is a research and application of behavioral science and learning theory using a system approach to perform analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation and management of technology use to help solve learning and performance problems. The main purpose is the use of technology to help solve learning problems and human performance
Educational technology is one area in facilitating human learning through the identification, development, organizing and systematic use of all learning resources and through the management of all processes. The formal object according to this understanding is how to facilitate learning.
Educational technology is a complex integrated process that includes people, procedures, ideas, means and organizations to analyze problems and design, implement, assess and manage problem solving in all aspects of human learning. The formal object of educational technology is solving the problem of human learning. Performed by analyzing the problem first, then implement, assess and manage the problem solving.
The latest definition, educational technology is the study and ethical practice in an effort to facilitate learning and improve performance by creating, using or utilizing, and managing the right processes and technology resources.
Obviously, the main purpose is still to facilitate learning (to be effective, efficient and attractive) and improve performance.
