Abstract

This study provides a naturalistic description of the ways that doctoral students who participated in an action research doctoral program used technology to support the dissertation. We identified seven students who had the most uses of technology and were also the most innovative who brought value to their studies through technology. The students employed a wide array of technology programs to facilitate their work on common doctoral dissertation tasks. The students had a facility with technology combined with knowledge of specific resources and a sense of how the task could be better accomplished with technology. The study has implications for the use of technology in doctoral programs.
