Conducting Action Research with Emerging Web 2.0 Technologies: A Review of the Literature
Save to My Collections
Abstract: This paper examines recent action research that was conducted using Web 2.0 “Cloud-Computing” technologies to support collaboration and communication opportunities. The spread of web-based technologies has led to questions regarding which tool is most appropriate to support the research design. An analysis of the literature identifies two themes 1) action research projects that have been aided by technology, and 2) action research with technology that supports collaboration. Drawing from this analysis a list of Web 2.0 tools are identified that support action research. What emerging technologies have the potential to enhance action research? Expansion, transparency, and feedback are identified as fruitful intersection points of where future actions research projects could emanate.
