TWG 10: New paradigms for researching digital technologies: achieving scalability and sustainability
Design research, design-based implementation research (DBIR), research-practice partnerships and learning analytics/big data are new paradigms that especially call for the participation of practitioners for co-designing and conducting research projects along with researchers. These developments pose new issues and challenges for research at the local level to large scale national and international research studies. New paradigms need to be developed which help to overcome the limits of more established research approaches and of current meta-analyses. Additionally, new learning environments and borderless learning present further challenges to researching IT in education and require strategies to find ways in which more locally designed based research might co-exist with more distant forms of data gathering and analysis?
