What Are LTA's: Low-Threshhold
Low Threshold Application (LTA) is a teaching/learning application of information
technology that is reliable, accessible, easy to learn, non-intimidating and (incrementally)
inexpensive. Each LTA has observable positive consequences, and contributes to
important long term changes in teaching and/or learning. "... the potential user
(teacher or learner) perceives an LTA as NOT challenging, not intimidating, not
requiring a lot of additional work or new thinking. LTAs… are also 'low-threshold'
in the sense of having low INCREMENTAL costs for purchase, training, support,
and maintenance." (Steve Gilbert, President, TLT Group)
Here is a useful Compilation of Resources about Low Threshold Applications by Charles Ansorge, of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
