1) Due to misguided calls for research comparing #emergencyremoteteaching with #onlineeducation -here are a few resources emphasizing that teaching and learning are too complex to make such simplistic comparisons, as noted previously by @steph_moore, @veletsianos, @michaelmgrant
2a) Clark, R. E. (1983). Reconsidering research on learning from media. Review of Educational Research, 53(4), 445–459. "The point is made, therefore, that all current reviews of media comparison studies suggest...
2b) "...that we will not find learning differences that can be unambiguously attributed to any medium of instruction. It seems that existing research is vulnerable to rival hypotheses concerning the uncontrolled effects of instructional method and novelty” (p. 456).
3) Clark, R. E. (1994). Media will never influence learning. Educational Technology Research and Development, 42(3), 21–29.
4) Clark, R. E. (1994). Media and methods. Educational Technology Research and Development, 42(3). 7-10.
5a) Bernard, R.M., et al. (2004). How does distance education compare with classroom instruction? A meta-analysis of the empirical literature. Review of Educational Research, 74(3), 379-439.
5b) "The to declare that DE and classroom instruction are equal without examining the variability surrounding their difference. Wide and unexplained variability precludes any such simplistic conclusion" (Bernard, et al., 2004, p. 406)
6a) Instead of conducting flawed comparison studies seeking to show effects on achievement or how one delivery method is better than another, researchers should investigate what worked best, under what conditions, for whom, how, and why. Context is so important!
6b) How did leaders, educators, staff, students adapt/manage/cope with #emergencyremoteteaching? One theory to consider is #DistributedLeadershipTheory? What other theories should be considered?
6c) How did educational policies change and what were their implications? What add'l changes are needed? What short-term and long-term policy changes resulted?
6d) What are the short- and long-term effects on staffing, recruitment, morale, well-being, etc?
6e) How has #EmergencyRemoteTeaching made us rethink how people learn and teach? How can we motivate and support educators and learners under these conditions?
6f) What measures/approaches supported the transition to #EmergencyRemoteTeaching? What can we learn from this if something similar happened again? What does this mean for other disruptions to #instructionalcontinuity?
6g) How are/have views of education, technology, and #onlineeducation changing/changed? - feel free to add more questions -this is just a start!
