While pursuing teaching degrees, educators are introduced to various learning theorists and their insights into how people learn best. Some familiar names include Piaget, Bandura, Vygotsky, and Gardner.

While understanding these theories of learning is still important, aspiring educators also need to familiarize themselves with theories, models, and approaches that provide insight into how technology, social media, and the Internet influence learning. Digital learning theories and approaches, such as RAT (opens in new tab), SAMR (opens in new tab), TPACK (opens in new tab), Digital blooms (opens in new tab), Connectivism (opens in new tab), Design thinking (opens in new tab) and Peeragogy (opens in new tab) help teachers develop curricula that engage students to use technology to research, curate, annotate, create, innovate, problem-solve, collaborate, campaign, reform, and think critically. These are skills described in Shelly Terrell’s Hacking Digital Learning Strategies with EdTech Missions (opens in new tab).
