What is Instructional Technology? The literal meaning is, it is a skill of constructing the instructional system which also involves the building of the mechanism for feedback in the instructional system. To be a good teacher, you need to be equipped with the theories, principles and practices of instructional design. One of the roles of an instructional designer is to organize the content according to the learner’s preferences. Sometimes the structure of the external material may not in line with our instructional strategy. Romanenko & Nikitina (2015 p.652) stated that none of the students can learn all data brought by outside information flow. According to this, each instructor has to gather special lists of the most useful sources of educational information. I think, to do this we can explore the skill hierarchy and procedural task analysis techniques.
So, if you are connected to the area of lesson design, creating a solution to address the instructional problem, you are a teacher, a coach, an instructor, an instructional designer, a curriculum designer or anything that is related to teaching and learning.
