Week Two Reflections-Action Research Topic
I learned alot from the week two assignments. I learned that there are many great action research topics to study to improve student performance. They can come from nine different passions that were discussed in our readings this week by Dr. Fichtman. These passions can lead to many topics that can be researched to help improve the quality of education for our students. After listening to the three videos I realized that technology and data are two components that need to be researched and analyzed to help our students. All three administrators agree that studying and interpreting data is essential for student growth. I also met with my site supervisor and we decided that my action research project should deal with new technology in the classroom. The "Bring Your Own Device" to school campaign was ultimately what I decided to research and study during my quest for a masters degree.
