As I mentioned in the entry entitled AERA 2016 and K-12 Online Learning, the 2016 annual meeting of the American Education Research Association is occurring in Washington, DC over the next few days. That means that I will be blogging many of the sessions throughout the week. The sixteenth session (and the final one for the conference) that I am blogging is:
Narrative Analysis of Students’ and Teachers’ Reflections on Technology-Enhanced Blended Instruction
- In Event: Roundtable Session 55
In Roundtable Session: Teachers’ Perspectives on Technology Integration
12:25 to 1:55pm, Convention Center, Level Three, Ballroom B
A qualitative narrative inquiry was conducted to examine student cognitive and affective factors that are impacted by implementing a technology-mediated blended learning instructional approach. By analyzing the narratives of six teachers and six students, six major themes emerged from the data: (a) being challenged, (b) effective student collaboration, (c) incorporating multi-disciplinary opportunities, (d) streamlining an effective classroom, (e) streamlining individual success, and (f) utilizing resources. The data indicated that both engagement and achievement can increase when instruction is relevant and authentic, and students are empowered to take responsibility for multiple aspects of their learning.

Unfortunately, I have had to leave the conference a day early and I am missing these sessions on the final day. So if anyone in attendance is able to post notes from the session in the comments below, I’d welcome it.
