3 The learning/

educational

technologist

There's a new job title out there: learning/

educational technologist. Exactly what does

this rapidly growing profession do? It deals

with a combination of communication,

information and related technology which

might be used to support learning, instruction,

and evaluation. Learning technologists are

people who're actively involved with exploring,

encouraging or enabling learning by means

of learning technologies.

The standard procedure for instruction

necessitates both expertise in the area being

taught and an understanding of how folks

learn. Technology-mediated learning

necessitates the extra understanding of both

technologies, and how they can enable and

improve learning. The learning technologist

will surely have a broad understanding of

current technology, including the world-wide

web, VLEs and smart devices. S/he may be a

practitioner, web designer/developer, able to

commission the production of new resources,

or just able to effectively select and adopt

existing resources. S/he should also have

some appreciation of the educational/learning

process.
