This book is a great resource for both teachers in teacher-training programs and working teachers. The book approaches TML from a constructivist perspective.

I particularly enjoyed their analysis of technology:

Learning Technologies:

  • are more than hardware
  • are any environment or definable set of (constructivist) activities
  • are not conveyors or communicators of meaning
  • support meaningful learning when they  fulfill a learning need

* learners and technologies should be intellectual partners, where the cognitive responsibility for performance is distributed to the partner that performs it better (p.6)
