Over 50 years ago, Marshall McLuhan stated, “the medium is the message” (McLuhan, 1964). McLuhan’s point was that the particular technology used to communicate a message will impact the content of that message. As teachers integrate technological tools into their teaching, so their pedagogy must adapt. In this chapter some constructs will be presented that can be used as tools to analyze new technological applications in relation to the content of a class to maximize student learning. Three main categories of information technologies are reviewed: reflective, collaborative, and social interactive.
