What is EdTech?
Educational technology, often referred to as "EdTech," is the study and practice of designing effective instruction using technology, media, and learning theory. "EdTechers" work in K-12 schools, higher education, and businesses where they use instructional design to create lessons, online classes, tutorials, help centers, and training programs. The Teaching with Technology program at Marlboro College focuses on the appropriate and effective integration of technology for greater educational outcomes.
