Learning by Design Lab

Literacy is essential for all people. Those with poor literacy skills are far more likely to live in poverty, face health problems, and grow isolated. Educational technology is a field of study that investigates the process of analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating the instructional environment and learning materials to improve teaching and learning.
