Abstract

Instead of just another taxonomy or typology that looks at how technology is being used in Education, this one focuses on the technology's results. Through the TPACK model of educator knowledge, this paper proposes that rating a particular technological system's relevance to the content (its usefulness) and how well acquainted students and the environment are toward the system (its familiarity) will best inform us regarding an appropriate approach to take toward using that technology in Education. These two factors tell us how, when, and even if any particular technology should be introduced into our educational systems.
