June 6, 2014 - If you hear the phrase Educational Technology, what springs into your mind?

Do you think SMARTboards, iPads, the little clickers that are used to register students’ responses to questions?

According to the Werklund School of Education’s Gene Kowch, those items are simply the tools that are used—by the architects who build the environments for learning.

Kowch, who is an Associate Professor, is currently leading some critical research into the development of new programs to assist students in transitioning from their academic disciplines into the working world, using the principles of educational leadership and educational technology. 

He took time to share his insights into this important field of study.
