Editorial 32(4): An argument for research significance
AbstractA recurring theme in the criticism of research relating to educational technology is that the field is swamped by descriptive studies. This work often does not provide for generalisation to population or theory, and rarely adds to our understanding of how the educational technology application or practices can be understood in terms of other contexts. Arguably, it is not sufficient to simply demonstrate that an effect was observed in response to an educational technology practice. There is an onus on researchers to consider how their findings are significant beyond the confines of their study.
