Support for the use of technology-based authentic learning environments during instruction has emerged in the past decade. Although the benefits of situating students in technology-rich open-ended learning environments has been observed by researchers and praised by organizations, such as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Science Foundation, the implementation of such environments in classrooms has been sparse at best. The primary components of technology-enhanced authentic learning environments will be discussed. Further, examples of such environments for upper elementary and middle grades students will be shared.
