Information technology prompts the need for learning software and hardware. The process of learning can be explained by many established learning theories. This paper will present a view of cognitive learning in relation to acquiring technology skills. This cognitive learning model will be based on Bateson and other theorists. Culture and other attributes of the learner will be acknowledged including the learner's relationship to the teacher.
