This paper argues that educational theories are complex and it is their structural complexity that prevents understanding and easy application to learning. Software tools to aid the understanding and application process can only be developed if there is a formal model for describing educational theories – an ontology or conceptual model. This paper outlines a process for developing the formal model and reports on the initial development of a conceptual model for educational theories.
