Students often fear the educational research course. Don't worry - this book is famous for its lack of jargon, for its clear and concrete explanations, and its light, often funny, tone. As you read the book, you will build skills that you need to read educational research and produce your own. The book will help guide you through each step in creating your own research report. You can compare your work with the example published research articles in every methods chapter. In addition, the new Digital Research Tools for the 21st Century feature introduces novel tools and methods you can use to make the process of doing research easier or more efficient - like using speech recognition programs to save time transcribing interviews, using flip cameras and Skype to collect qualitative data, and using management programs to organize citations.
