Entailment Issues to Integrate Learning Theories with Educational Technologies

David Prata, George França, and Marcelo Lisboa

Abstract—Learning technologies intrinsically pervade education via Internet, encouraging teachers to conform their pedagogical practices. However, this information era imposes an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach for applying instructional strategies to technology. In this work, a knowledge engineering case is described to represent the knowledge design entailment issues when integrating learning theories with information technology. The systematic and procedural language of computers in scene illustrate the challenge task of instruction design to develop customized content and to assess students’ learning. Underlying these reasons, this work create awareness for the long trip to deal with pedagogical technology intricate issues in order to cause students to learn, and not only to use technology tools.

Index Terms—Educational technology, knowledge engineering, pedagogical issues, instructional design, ontology.
