Abstract

To transform teaching and learning in ways that better meet the needs of digital natives, there has been increased emphasis on the integration of technology into teaching and learning. However, despite generally improved conditions for technology integration, high-level technology use, associated with constructivist or learner-centered practices, is still low. Many teachers and instructors are not using technologies to their potential, often integrating the new tools into their old practices. In an attempt to better support teachers and instructors in using emerging technologies to design and facilitate learner-centered instruction (LCI), this chapter provides an overview of learner-centered instruction (LCI) and the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK) framework. Then, the potential of emerging technologies to foster learner-centered instruction (LCI) and future trends are discussed.
