This paper questions the robustness of empirical evidence regarding technology's ability to promote increased learning. The use of a new technology, by itself, does not seem to increase student learning. Most evaluation research has found that learning can take place with any technology-based medium. However, the literature has shown a significant interaction between instructional approach and student learning style. The introduction of educational technology into the classroom likely affects the patterns in the relationships among variables associated with teaching and learning.
