  • Elementary Education
  • Foreign Language Education-Secondary
  • Mathematics Education-Secondary
  • Science Education-Secondary
  • Social Studies Education-Secondary
  • Special Education


Instructional Technology gets a new name

Instructional Technology, or IT as it is commonly referred to, has been changed to Learning Design and Technology (LDT). Since being founded in the 1960s, IT has evolved quite a bit.  Not to be confused with Information Technology, LDT is a growing interdisciplinary field that works to further scientific understanding of learning applications, particularly through the design, implementation and evaluation of learning innovations and the impact of instructional methodologies on the improvement of human and organizational performance.
