Definition of EdTech

The definition of EdTech, or Educational Technology, seems to have been defined in a different way every time I have come across it in any reading that I have done.  There are multiple words that can be used to define EdTech.  It is a little difficult to articulate the definition because I think it may depend on your theories and beliefs.  On the surface EdTech can be thought of as any technology used to enhance learning.  However, when you really think about what EdTech is, it is much more than that.  EdTech isn’t simply technology used in the classroom.  To me, EdTech is the study of the development and application of technological tools used to facilitate learning in order to improve performance.
