Presented by: Conor Galvin
This workshop is for those thinking about maybe doing or in the early stages of personal research into classroom / school ICT usage. It looks in a practical way at the kinds of things that make both formal and less formal research more ‘doable’ and introduces participants to a number of ideas / activities that can help a novice get more from the research process.
