Chapter 10 provides historical context for the current definition by reviewing salient elements of prior AECT definitions. Chapter 11 discusses ethical considerations and chapter 12 concludes by discussing ramifications of the current definition for academic programs in educational technology.This book is appropriate for anyone working in the field of educational technology: students, instructors, researchers and in-service providers.
