This paper examines some aspects of a graduate course in educational technology at the University of Regina, Canada. The focus of the course (offered in the Fall 1999 semester) was to examine how aspects of learning theory can impact the use of technology in schools, and to develop a theoretical model that could drive and reflect appropriate ways for technology use in the classroom. In this paper we describe the course content, provide an overview of the processes involved in developing the theoretical model, and propose characteristics of a model for effective technology-curriculum integration.
