A short essay written for ETEC 511: Foundations of Educational Technology and originally posted to a discussion forum on the topic of “Foundational characteristics of Ed Tech: what defines a good educational technology program?”

Three basic principles are proposed:  understanding of the philosophical foundations of learning, compliance with the principles of the instructional design process (with learner needs embedded), and utilisation of media to facilitate real-world or near-real-world contexts.
