Abstract

The culture in the classroom has changed. With the development of new technologies, new tools are been designed and marketed to schools, instructors and students. Vendors aggressively pitch their products with a promise of an enhanced technology enabled environment for learning and teaching. This raises an important question on how to choose the tools that are appropriate for instruction. Instructors must base their decisions on the functionality of technology, how effective it is, and how it will suit their purpose. At this time when institutions are operating on a shoestring, making smart technology investment is important for academics and administrators.This pilot study discusses the merit and the selection processes for instructional technology tools.
