(TR1) Toward a Design Science of Education

Many technologies have been introduced in classrooms all over the world, but these in-novations have provided remarkably little systematic knowledge or accumulated wis-dom to guide the development of future in-novations. This paper introduces the pro-gram of work being undertaken by the Center for Technology in Education, which consists of three components: to synthesize research on technological innovations; to develop a methodology for carrying out de-sign experiments; to study different ways of using technology in classrooms and schools; and to begin to construct a systematic science of how to design educational environments so that new technologies can be introduced successfully.
