An examination of research approaches that underlie research on educational technology: A review from 2000 to 2004

Abstract [en]

This study examines the research approaches that underlie research on educational technology. A classification framework was developed and used when examining all articles published in four well-known journals between 2000 and 2004 (n = 660). The aim of the study was to contribute toward an understanding of the research approaches that characterize research on educational technology. It was found that research is increasingly dominated by empirical articles that adopt a pluralistic approach, both regarding research methods but also regarding different types of non-empirical research. The focus has been to apply rather than develop frameworks, concepts, and theory. Published articles in the four journals were more different from each other than what the aims and scopes of the journals led the authors to believe. Finally, researchers are challenged to reflect on the state of the field and how it may be further developed. (Contains 6 tables and 5 figures.) [An earlier version of this article was presented at the Netlearning conference in 2006. This research was partly supported by The Swedish Research School of Management and IT where both authors are members.]
