Abstract

The foundations of using technology to increase students' engagement and learning are most often associated with the work of Seymour Papert, a mathematician at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who co‐founded the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory with Marvin Minsky. This chapter presents promising theories and practices that utilize technology as a means to enhance educational outcomes. The efficacy of technology adoption, and practice in the classroom is dependent on teachers' pre‐service education and professional development over the course of his or her career. Integrating the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) model into pre‐service teacher preparation and in‐service professional development may help educators select, adopt, implement, and assess technology effectively. Video games and simulations have the potential to provide more accurate information about student learning than other traditional forms of assessment such as standardized tests.
