Abstract

The purpose of the study is to discuss approaches for developing professional ethics in educational technology (ET) based on definitions of educational technology and performances in the field of instructional design and technology (IDT). We will do in several stages, first, we will review historical definitions of educational-instructional technology and discussions for ET field. Then, we will discuss each of definition of ET as previous concepts, focusing attention for rules to primary concepts and contents presented in each definition. We will also present historical approaches of the definitions which provided professional ethics perspective and ethics in society since 1960s.

The process should indicate or address possible performance design approaches in ID steps for developing learning and teaching in learning environments as well as developing professional ethics in educational technology. This also indicates approaches in philosophy of educational technology and its theory, definition and applications of new technologies as well as professional ethics perspectives and AECT code of ethics.

In the paper, we discuss the professional ethics strategies and steps from past to present that a project design teams should follow the strategies and rules for designing learning environments in education, industry, business and army based on philosophy of educational technology and professional ethics in performance with ID models by using newest technologies in society. The process compares both understanding global ethics strategies and considerations for research and product design by ID Models. The steps include understanding words in educational technology practice concept, psychological and instructional trends in instructional design (ID) as well as educational technology movement and using professional ethics rules for conducting multimedia projects in last decays.

At the end of the study, conceptions of educational technology will be discussing as a last definition of educational technology. In addition to professional ethical standards in performance in the field, we will present the relationships between educational technology and application problems for creating instructional materials in society. All steps and standards in professional ethics based on AECT’s code and philosophical approaches in the field will be given at the end of paper.

Keywords: Practice in educational technology (ET), instructional design (ID) models, instructional design and technology (IDT), professional ethics.
