We are beginning to learn that the success of educational technologies lies less in the technologies themselves than in our ability to engage in thoughtful, ethical design around the system into which we are introducing innovations. As a result, the interactions between technology and social systems must be more carefully considered. Ethics for Educational Technology and Instructional Design approaches those considerations through an applied ethics lens, providing a practical guide for students, researchers, and professionals to learn how to intentionally achieve desired results and safeguard against undesirable results. This innovative new book provides:
- Original contributions from leading experts in the field that explain particularly complex or difficult concepts
- Case studies that give practitioners & students examples of real world applications
- Instructor and Student Resources via a companion website
To situate ethics as a design activity, Moore provides a model for thinking about ethics in educational technology in an applied, practical manner and how it relates to the instructional design process. This book is an essential addition to the practitioner or researcher’s library, as well as a valuable textbook for graduate courses on ethics in educational technology, e-learning, and instructional design.
