Interactive-television, Web based instruction, computer assisted instruction and any other method that provides education at a distance or uses technology in the classroom are the buzz words of the day. Chunking, the dividing of material into useful parts that stand-alone, is a term that regularly enters conversations in the distributive learning arena. Organizations are spending large sums of money to make the technology work; the concern is the pedagogy. What is being delivered? What are the desired outcomes of the delivery and the delivery method? What is the best way to involve higher order learning skills? This paper will illustrate the pedagogical needs of technology as a teaching tool.
