Defining Classroom Research

Dr. J. P. Galloway

Developed by Dr. A. Cavallo

problem statement
Problem Statement:
  • A thirty year history of computer training programs for teachers has failed to yield significant improvements of both skill-knowledge mastery and the classroom integration of computing for students.
  • As school districts plan technology support for teachers, coordinators and committees must consider how teachers are actually learning and using computers.
purpose statement
Purpose Statement:
  • To examine the extent to which taking formal classes & formal training programs versus personally teaching themselves is related to teachers’ integration of technology into the classrooms.
research questions
Research Questions:
  • To what extent do teachers’ computing learning experiences - formal classes vs. personally teaching themselves - predict their classroom integration of technology for use with students?
hypotheses or predictions
Hypotheses or Predictions:
  • Teachers’ who teach themselves computing will achieve a greater integration of computing technology into the classroom than those learning only through formal classes.
null hypotheses
Null Hypotheses:
  • There is no relationship between learning method – formal vs. personal – and teachers’ level of classroom integration of technology.
characteristics of educational research anderson 1996
Characteristics of Educational Research(Anderson, 1996)
  • Educational research attempts to solve a problem.
  • Research involves gathering new data from primaryor first-hand sources or using existingdata or a new purpose.
  • Research is based upon observable experience or empirical evidence.
  • Research demands accurate observation and description.
  • Research generally employs carefully designed proceduresand rigorous analysis.
  • Research emphasizes the development of generalizations, principles or theories tat will help in understanding, prediction and control.
  • Research requires expertise -- familiarity with the field; competence in methodology; technical skill in collecting and analyzing the data.
  • Research attempts to find an objective, unbiased solution to the problem and takes great pains to validate the procedures employed.
  • Research is a deliberate and unhurried activity which is directional but often refines the problem or questions as the research progresses.
  • Research is carefully recorded and reported to other personsinterested in the problem.
