A Case Study of Design-Based Research for Creating a Vision Prototype of a Technology-Based Innovative Learning Environment
Ma, Yuxin; Harmon, Stephen W.
Journal of Interactive Learning Research, v20 n1 p75-93 Jan 2009
Design-based research is a burgeoning research paradigm holding the promise of introducing more socially responsible studies to transform education. However, there is a lack of methodological standards and established research processes to inform this type of study. Although there are general principles and procedures on design-based research, little guidance is available to researchers with regard to how to conduct design-based research at the individual iteration level when creating technology-based innovative learning environments. In this article, we describe a case study of design-based research in a single iteration, illustrate a research and development process evolved from this study, and present several guidelines on how to conduct design-based research.
