For more information, try one of our other databases, like EBSCOhost, using more specific terms. Copy and paste the searches below into the search box:

SU "technology in education" AND TI "technology in education"

SU "technology in education" AND SU(innovation)

TI("educational technology")

Here are some other tips that may help:

  • The two letters SU or TI before the terms is a way of limiting the search to specific parts of the article to help narrow the search. SU = Subject and TI = Title. Use the Advanced Search link to select these and other fields.
  • The quotation marks tell the database to search for the terms as a phrase as in "global warming."
  • Parentheses, in general, allow either/or searches. For example, (cats OR dogs).
  • The asterisk (*) is called a wildcard, which means if you search for child*, it will retrieve child, children and childhood.
  • Use the publication date limiter to find recent articles.

And try this method: type in technology in education letter by letter. As you do, searches starting with these terms will be listed in a dropdown from the search box. You can scroll down to one that looks helpful and click on it and then go to the results. For example:

technology in the classroom
