Learning technologies and new media

Research on learning technologies and new media refers to theoretically grounded investigations into the design of learning environments that are enabled or mediated by a broad array of computational, representational, and collaboration technologies. Examples of these new types of learning environments include computer supported collaborative learning, virtual reality and 3D visualization systems, mobile devices, intelligent pedagogical agents, use of computers and other digital devices in classrooms, technology use in corporate training and out of school learning, and technology enabled delivery of courses. Research in this field also explores topics at the intersection of technology and education, such as instructional design, teacher education, and learning management.
