Abstract: Educational technology has revolutionized the traditional forms of classroom teaching and learning. Past few years have witnessed the emergence of the educational User Interface (UI) in the form of tablets, whiteboards, mobile and handheld devices for enhancing the classroom learning and instruction. Interaction design plays a pivotal role in improving the educational UI through a step-by-step approach. This process involves understanding needs and expec-tations of students, examining the fundamental theories governing potential im-plementations and performing design and evaluation. Existing literature on edu-cational UI and technology has revealed that its present research agenda is overly dominated by studies conducted in developed world. This has resulted in the poor understanding on educational technology need of Arabic speaking students for example. The aim of this paper is to present the recent emergence of educational technology by performing a thorough review of existing work in this emerging domain. This work also complements our ongoing work on developing appropriate educational UI and technology for Arabic speaking students in Kuwait. (More)
