A systematic approach was undertaken to locate and analyse empirical research examining the use of technology to support constructivist approaches to learning. In particular, this paper focuses upon Problem, Project and Case Based Learning and consults publications which have employed technology in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics within on campus higher education settings. Four databases were searched and after applying relevant inclusion and exclusion criteria, 56 publications published during 2007–2021 were included in this review. In addition to systematically documenting the landscape of literature associated with this area of research, this paper offers an analysis of the contributions of the research in understanding the way in which technology affects efficiency, team effectiveness and inclusivity as part of the learning process.
