A Call to Action for Research in Digital Learning: Learning without Limits of Time, Place, Path, Pace…or Evidence
Cavanaugh, Cathy; Sessums, Christopher; Drexler, Wendy
Journal of Online Learning Research, v1 n1 p9-15 2015
This essay is a call for rethinking our approach to research in digital learning. It plots a path founded in social trends and advances in education. A brief review of these trends and advances is followed by discussion of what flattened research might look like at scale. Scaling research in digital learning is crucial to advancing understanding as digital learning quickly becomes mainstream (Watson, Pape, Murin, Gemin, & Vashaw, 2014) and as learning environments and pedagogies shift rapidly. Educators and leaders need more current and detailed insights into effective practice as education becomes more personalized (Kennedy, Freidhoff, & DeBruler, 2014).
