Week13 ppt

  1. Digital Research Week 13
  2. Bit of a blurry concept • Digital tools for helping with data collection, analysis, and presentation (e.g., surveymonkey, AtlasTI, infographics) • Research conducted entirely online • Research partially conducted online • Research focusing on mobile communications and network access etc. • Research that is “technology” focused (e.g., tablet use, Smartboard use) • Old research in digital disguise (especially in education)
  3. Potential issues • “Hit & Run/Drive-by” research • Anonymity • Demographics • Ethics • Learning assumed to occur simply because digital tech is present • Problem of needing-to-research-something studies • Problem of convenience driving the study

  5. Digital Research & Research Design • Established research designs and approaches don’t necessarily transfer well • Drawing boundaries around cases can be tricky • New social practices that haven’t been studied before (e.g., “friending,” “tagging”) • Multiple terms for fairly similar things but still tricky to talk about across fields
  6. An example
  7. I’m an average student, Cs, Bs and a couple of Ds in Statistics and Economics (tricky stuff >w<).
  8. More things to consider • Anonymity and traceability (and the desire for visibility) • Privacy issues • Timing of data collection • How to present multimedia and hyperlinked practices in the flat plane of academic writing • What your study contributes (to); i.e., larger ideological positions
  9. Let’s take a look…. •CamStudio •Endnote •Evernote •Webcopier
