Chapter 2: Human Development

When integrating technology into the teaching and learning environment, it is vital to consider the developmental stage of the learner. This chapter reviews human development from both a cognitive perspective (based on the work of Piaget) and a social perspective (based on Erikson). It provides a foundation for later chapters that focus more explicitly on teaching and learning with technology.
