Despite copious amounts of research on technology in education, many teachers still struggle to use technology effectively. Much research on technology integration focuses on teacher education and design. For example, the TPACK framework describes the type of knowledge teachers need to design effective uses of technologies in their classrooms. However, despite its prevalence, TPACK has not led to wide-spread change in educational technology use. We argue this is because we have not paid enough attention to how educational technology works at a systems and culture level. In this article, we present a new framework, the Five Discourses of Design, that can help us consider how educational technology impacts and is impacted by systems and culture. We provide examples of how the framework applies to teacher education
