Day 1 glit6757 producersof_edresearch

  1. 1. GLIT 6757 Becoming Producers of Educational Research Summer 2, 2013
  2. 2. Two major jobs for the week • Complete a simple, basic computer command-related task • Document, analyse and write-up the learning and interactions that take place while learning what the task means and how to do it
  3. 3. Documenting your group’s activity • Closely observe what’s going on and keep fieldnotes (observed data) • Make note of the documents you use to help you (written data) • Take photographs (observed data) • Make video and audio recordings (spoken data) • Screen recordings and screen grabs (observed data) • Make note of the people you use to help you (inside and outside your group)
  4. 4. Good fieldnotes are: • As descriptively detailed as possible: –Mud maps of space layout etc. –Context descriptions –Verbatim dialogue • As objective as possible (avoid interpretations as far as is possible)
  5. 5. Writing good field notes • Develop your own shorthand • Include regular time stamps • Leave a wide right-hand margin for notes • Ensure they’re legible for others • Detail, detail, detail
  6. 6. For example… Not nearly enough detail. We finally found a tutorial for line prompts. Yay! Getting close. 10:41am Stacey used Google.com to search for the phrase “command line prompt” + tutorial. The search returned 1million + results. We clicked on the third search return—David Baumgold.com/tutorials/command-line?#what- is—because Leanne had seen Baumgold’s website recommended on wikipedia entry for “command line prompt”. Leanne: “Hey, click on the third one. Baum-whats- it. Stacey: Why that one? Leanne It was in the wikipedia bibliography. Stacey clicks on the URL and opens the page……..
  7. 7. Your task: Use Windows command prompts to make your computer “do” something
  8. 8. Danger, Will Robinson!! Do NOT run a command just to see what it does. “Make sure you understand what the command is supposed to do first, especially is the command involves changing or removing files” (David Baumgold.com/tutorials/command- line?#what-is)
  9. 9. Never, ever key in: rm ~rt / rmdir
  10. 10. Set up a Google Doc And invite us to share it: micheleknobel@gmail.com colin.lankshear@gmail.com
