The educational technology designer should know about the learning theories to analyze the needs and design the contents in terms of the target that aimed to reach from learning operations. Educational technology is known as a process that includes many factors, which will provide a good simulation for the students. This research study used a basic qualitative study because it interprets an educational field experience. This is the type of research most commonly used in the fields of education, health, and social work because it is interpretative research. The participants in this study were two college instructors and 10 college students who volunteered to participate in this study. All participants have teaching experience and work in the same school. This study concludes that mixing instructional technology with behavioral theory provides an opportunity to stimulate students through psychological conditions by direct experiences and activities inside the classroom. Mixing instructional technology with constructivist theory allows educators to focus on how students can explore and discover class content and new experiences by explaining their mistakes, ideas, and experiences and the basics of the content.
