The range of potential applications of IT to education and training is so vast that it can hardly be envisaged. Theories of learning and instruction should be able to provide a framework to enable us to search this space of possibilities and to assess some of the potential uses of the technology. Part I outlines these theories and considers their principal implications for the role of educational technology to support instruction and learning. In part II, examples of systems which have been inspired by these theories will be examined.
