ABSTRACT

Instructional technology has historically supported education by providing hypermedia enhanced learning environments. As interactive technologies evolve, so does our understanding of what we can do with the tools around us. An interactive learning environment is one in which instructors utilize technology to engage and interact with students, moving away from a linear conception of knowledge acquisition. As new technologies are incorporated into our daily environments, they are instrumental to the way we learn and research. Accordingly, it is curious that technology remains  “black boxed” or viewed as simply novel distractions for the 21st century student. The goal of the Learning Technology expo is to explore how to utilize technology effectively and efficiently to enhance learning environments. What is the intersection between technical and pedagogic interactivity? To answer these questions and more, join Stevens faculty and Information Technology for our conference, which brings interdisciplinary perspectives on information technologies, directly to you.
