Abstract

This paper reports on some of the theories and methods that could characterize historical study in the field of educational technology. After a discussion of the importance of historical study, it provides background about the problems facing the uses of different historical methods in the study of educational technology. Difficulties arise when large numbers of members of the field believe that only certain factual content is the limit of the study of educational technology. This paper proposes the use of two specific methodologies in the study of the history of educational technology--the history of culture and the history of ideas. (Contains 61 references.) (AEF)
