Abstract

There is a present and growing need for Gold Standard research on the effects of educational technology on student performance as expressed in a variety of journals by some of the leading experts in the field of educational technology. The purpose of this panel presentation is to gather a group of interested researchers to provide feedback on current efforts to initiate Gold Standard research and to discuss methods, and instrumentation for field-based data collection in K12 classrooms. Panel participants may also critique the survey designed to help identify teachers, prepared in technology-enriched teacher education programs, who are innovators with instructional technology, or who use technology for instruction and assessment on a regular basis. Results of the first survey will be shared and participants will have the opportunity to provide revision suggestions which will help shape future iterations of this research project, or improve the instrument for use by other researchers.
