Design-based research

In Uncategorized on April 27, 2009 at 12:41 pm

After reading some articles on Design-based research (DBR) I am convinced it might be a solution for my personal research. It seems that DBR is particulary appropriate for exploring educational technologies because:
1. It focuses on interventions in real contexts
2. It involves partnerships between practitioners, students and researchers
3. It is iterative as context and technology changes
4. It is emergent as insights are gathered and developed into principles and patterns.

I found this in the latest book of George Siemens on Emerging Technologies. You can read more about DBR here.
