A Conceptual Framework for SMART Applications in Higher Education: Emerging Research and Opportunities
Abstract: Beginning with a background of the growth of information, the means by which one knows the world around him or her is explored. The role and importance of memory is examined in the context of learning. This leads to an examination of theories of learning, which, in turn, leads to an examination of learner characteristics. The role of instructional technology and its ability to enhance the speed and depth of learning is discussed. The foregoing leads to the conceptual framework in which one can view and approach the information explosion. The books ends with a discussion of what the future may hold for education and for making learning more efficient and effective.
