  15. 15. ABOUT ADMISSIONS PROFILES OPPORTUNITIES RESOURCES © 2007 Stanford University – All rights reserved What is LDT? | Courses | Faculty | Advisory Board | Curriculum | Program History Dan Schwarz LDT FACULTY PhD, Columbia MA, Columbia BA, Swathmore “ I know of no other program that provides students with precisely what they need to succeed in the exciting field of education technologies. The combination of theory and practice in a diverse set of domains is unparalleled.” New technologies are being developed rapidly worldwide. As a result, the face of education is changing. But this new blend of technology and education introduces important questions How can technology enhance education? How can recent inventions and their original purpose be expanded to become part of a learning environment? The Learning, Design and Technology program at Stanford University seeks to address these questions. Our mission is to prepare professionals to design and evaluate educationally informed and empirically grounded learning environments, products, and programs that effectively employ emergent technologies in a variety of settings. We want to rethink learning, generating revolutionary ideas that will pioneer the future of education. LDT helps you define the future
