Werler, Tobias Christoph; Baraldsnes, Dziuginta – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
This paper explores the historic ideas and practice of outdoor education, as developed in Jean Jacques Rousseau's "Émile", and realized by Adolf Reichwein's rural teaching practice. We aimed at developing a comprehensive research design, triangulating different qualitative data (text and photos). In the paper, we explore how the idea of…

Neumann, Michelle M.; Neumann, David L. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Touch screen tablets are being increasingly used in schools for learning and assessment. However, the validity and reliability of assessments delivered via tablets are largely unknown. The present study tested the psychometric properties of a tablet-based app designed to measure early literacy skills. Tablet-based tests were also compared with…

Khwaja, Tehmina; Mahoney, Kerrigan – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Research on new literacies and technology can be a challenging prospect for researchers due to the emerging nature of the subject. In this article, we present our experience using an innovative methodological technique that facilitated our narrative inquiry into the attitudes and perceptions of school leaders about media literacy. We provided our…

Call-Cummings, Meagan; Hauber-Özer, Melissa; Byers, Christie; Mancuso, Greer Peden – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Photovoice, which falls under the methodological umbrella of participatory action research (PAR), is a method of inquiry used to visually document and honor the knowledge(s), voices, and experiences of community members about particular issues affecting their lives. By privileging these voices, photovoice seeks to investigate, disrupt, and…

DeCino, Daniel A.; Waalkes, Phillip L. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Thoroughly conceptualized and designed member checks can strengthen credibility in qualitative research. Member checks can help researchers increase accuracy of their findings, reflect on their topic, and create change. Although member checks are widely used, numerous researchers have argued that they are often underdeveloped in terms of design…

Cho, Seonhee; Yi, Youngjoo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Despite a growing number of Second Language (L2) researchers working in cross-cultural and cross-linguistic settings, issues related to these uniquely situated researcher identities have only scantily been addressed. In order to close this gap, we investigated three U.S.-based Korean female researchers in L2 studies. We sought to understand (1)…

Creely, Edwin – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This article describes a phenomenological approach to doing educational inquiry and understanding learning. Working within the qualitative tradition, the research is conceived as 'narrow and deep', intimate research that focuses definitively on internality and on first-hand experiences of learning. The theoretical background for doing…

Fleer, Marilyn; Hedges, Helen; Fleer-Stout, Freya; Bich Hanh, Le Thi – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Researching quality in early childhood settings has been operationalized in many ways, within and across countries. Nevertheless, despite some consensus on what might constitute a universally recognized view of what is considered essential for young children's development, there are strong indicators that locally developed assessment tools are…

Bokhove, Christian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This article reports on an exploratory project in which technology and dynamic social network analysis (SNA) are used for modelling classroom interaction. SNA focuses on the links between social actors, draws on graphic imagery to reveal and display the patterning of those links, and develops mathematical and computational models to describe and…

Falloon, Garry – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Criticisms have been levelled at e-research that limited knowledge has been produced helpful for guiding educators in using digital tools more effectively for teaching and learning. This issue has become more acute with the emergence of mobile devices that enable learners to transition across different learning spaces and times. Traditional data…

von der Fehr, Ane; Sølberg, Jan; Bruun, Jesper – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Social network analysis (SNA) has been used in many educational studies in the past decade, but what these studies have in common is that the populations in question in most cases are defined and known to the researchers studying the networks. Snowball sampling is an SNA methodology most often used to study hidden populations, for example, groups…

Pepper, David; Hodgen, Jeremy; Lamesoo, Katri; Kõiv, Pille; Tolboom, Jos – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Cognitive interviewing (CI) provides a method of systematically collecting validity evidence of response processes for questionnaire items. CI involves a range of techniques for prompting individuals to verbalise their responses to items. One such technique is concurrent verbalisation, as developed in Think Aloud Protocol (TAP). This article…

O'Boyle, Aisling – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This paper discusses researcher identity, positioning, and reflexivity as they relate to the experience of a researcher on an interprofessional research project. The project collected video recordings of students and healthcare professionals in university and clinical settings. During the process of data collection, 'conversations' emerged between…

Bland, Derek – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
Emerging from projects that have involved working with primary school children in school-related research, this article offers suggestions of how drawing as a principal means of data gathering can be either constructive or of little value. The qualitative research projects discussed include investigations of school improvement and consideration of…
