Commentary: Expanding Notions of Acceptable Research Evidence in Educational Technology--A Response to Schrum et al.
Dawson, Kara; Ferdig, Richard E.
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v6 n1 p133-142 2006
"Developing Acceptable Evidence in Educational Technology Research" (Schrum et al., 2005) and its precursor editorial, "A Proactive Approach to a Research Agenda for Educational Technology" (Bull, Knezek, Roblyer, Schrum, & Thompson, 2005), are unprecedented collaborative efforts by journal editors to influence research in our field. This response aims to highlight the inherent complexity within each of the four main issues addressed by Schrum et. al. and to expand the conversation. We appreciate both the editors' efforts to be proactive with the problems and solutions as well as their open invitation to comment on their ideas for advancing the field. We look forward to continued dialogue.
