Panel on Efficacy Research
Tuesday, March 7 10:15 AM-11:15 AM
Presider:Stephanie Barbee, University of North Texas, United States
A National Symposium on the Efficacy of Educational Research will take place in May 2017. The symposium will address the role of efficacy research in the development, adoption, and implementation of educational technology. The symposium represents the culmination of a year-long collaboration among stakeholders that rarely collaborate in support of education technology: academic researchers; entrepreneurs; district and university leaders; investors and philanthropists; and teachers and professors. Educational leaders from the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) and the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) are participating in this effort. This panel will provide an advance preview of a report by a working group that is developing recommendations designed to address this issue. The panel will present the framework developed to guide this work and preliminary recommendations.
