EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
Educational technology, sometimes shortened to EduTech or EdTech, is a wide field. Educational technology as an academic field can be considered either as a design science or as a collection of different research interests addressing fundamental issues of learning, teaching and social organization. Educational technology as practice refers to any form of teaching and learning that makes use of technology. Nevertheless, there are a few features on which most researchers and practitioners might agree:
     • Use of technology is principled: Technology means the systematic application of scientific knowledge to practical tasks. Therefore, educational technology is based on theoretical knowledge drawn from different disciplines (communication, education, psychology, sociology, philosophy, artificial intelligence, computer science, etc.) plus experiential knowledge drawn from educational practice.
     • Educational technology aims to improve education: Technology should facilitate learning processes and increase performance of the educational system(s) as it regards to effectiveness and/or efficiency.
