Journal of Experiential Education Volume 22, Number 2, ISSN 1053-8259


Because new information-age learning models incorporate experiential education theories and practices, integration of information technology is an opportunity to integrate experiential methods. Scenarios are presented for integrating technology into experiential curricula. Problems include cost, training, lack of quality software, and incompatibility with certain outdoor and adventure education experiences. Technology needs human guidance in its application. Contains 25 references. (TD)
