VINE/RMIT Research into best practice use of technology in schools

19 Oct 2023 12:43 PM | Rob Flavell (Administrator)

VINE are collaborating with RMIT University in a research study, “Creative and effective integration of technologies into learning and teaching” led by Dr Thembi Mason. The aim of the study is to increase teacher knowledge and skills in the use of technologies for learning and teaching in the classroom. Through participating, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of educational practices and gain valuable insights into effective pedagogical approaches with technology integration. You will contribute to the development of a framework or model for teacher capacity-building in the use of technologies for learning and teaching and inform a targeted teacher professional learning program. This information not only benefits your school but will also benefit pre-service teacher programs at RMIT University and beyond.
The study involves the following key components:

Questionnaire: You will be asked to complete a brief 10-minute online survey to provide baseline information about your teaching experience, current technology use, and perceptions of technology in the classroom. Complete the survey now - or forward to colleagues at your school for them to complete.
The survey is open until 10/11/2023

Opt-in Interviews: In addition, for those who agree by indicating their participation, Dr Mason will conduct interviews (approx. 45 minutes) with participating teachers to gain in-depth insights into their experiences, challenges, and successes with integrating technology into their teaching.

Data Analysis and Findings: The collected data will be analysed, and the findings will be used to identify best practices, potential challenges, and recommendations for enhancing learning and teaching using technologies. The results of the study will be shared with you, and your anonymity and confidentiality will be strictly maintained.

Please note that participation in this research study is entirely voluntary. If you choose to participate, your commitment of time and effort would be highly appreciated. This is a great opportunity to shape professional learning in this space and to give feedback into what is working and what is not working in effective technology integration in learning and teaching.

If you are interested in participating or have any further questions about the study, please feel free to contact Dr Mason at thembi.mason@rmit.edu.au or 03 9925 7729. More detailed information is outlined in the plain language statement at the beginning of the survey.

Thank you for considering this invitation and we look forward to the possibility of collaborating with you on this exciting endeavour.
