Dear Commons Community,
I am in Bethesda, Maryland, for another set of meetings with colleagues from the United States Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) and ABT Associates for our project for the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) series of publications.
Tentatively titled, Using Instructional Technology to Support Postsecondary Learning, this project will present recommendations for educators to address challenges in using technology in their classrooms. It will be based on reviews of research, the experiences of practitioners, and the opinions of recognized experts. The crux of the publication will be a set of recommendations that inform best practice in the use of instructional technology.
We will be spending two days together reviewing about 30 original research projects all of which are based on methods criteria that meet IES standards for evidence. A synthesis of these studies will be drafted and available later this year.
