Learning and Technology

Learning and Technology

A         The technology field is an ever-changing field filled with many challenges. These challenges are divided into two, there are the critical issues and there are the problems. In a school setting it would be difficult to impart the technology knowledge and especially to students who might not view the information as relevant. In addition, there would be a problem of creating a teaching guide to enable the teachers, university professors and other critical staff related to the technology education, pass their message.

B         A research shall be conducted to ascertain the position of the individuals in charge of teaching in the technology field on the problems and issues they face and their students. The research shall also be made to find out how the problems can be solved and what resources need to be employed to cater for the problem. The research question for the research shall be; what critical issues and problems do the students and the teachers in the technology education field encounter? The research hypothesis therefore shall be; to find out what critical issues and problems students and teachers in the technology education field encounter.

The goals of the study shall be to help teachers in the field cope or curb the problems they experience. Another goal shall be to help students cope or stop the problems they face in their technology studies. The importance of the study is to find a solution to the problems faced by the students and the teachers alike, in their classroom relationship in the technology studies (Walliman, 2005).

The role of the researcher shall be to obtain information, which is standardized, from the people with the most knowledge about the topic. The roles of the participants shall therefore be to relay relevant information according to the questions asked or the required instructions that they shall be given. The types of data collected shall be divided into two broad categories, that of the teachers and the students. On the teachers’ bracket, the data collection criteria shall then be split into, problems and issues involving teaching materials and problems and issues involving the delivery methods. On the students’ bracket, the data collection criteria shall be split into, problems and issues involving understanding of the teaching materials used and, problems and issues involving understanding the teachers. The data shall then be quantified according to every category. This means that the students and teachers fitting to every category shall be counted. Then the data collected shall be compiled and later analyzed.

The data shall be collected using interviews of the entire technology faculty; this means interviewing the teaching staff and the students and determining who falls under which category. The instrument used and most relevant to this kind of research shall be a sample surveys from the population census conducted annually in every faculty to determine the problems and issues the teachers and students face (Creswell, 2003).

C         A research shall be conducted to find out why the problems and issues faced in the technology education department arise. The research shall also be carried out to find out how to curb or control the rise of these problems in this department. The research question for the research shall be; why do critical issues and problems encountered by the students and the teachers in the technology education field arise; and how can they be stopped? The research hypothesis therefore shall be; to find out why critical issues and problems faced by the students and teachers in the technology education field arise.

The goal of the study shall be to help the management of learning institutions find out how the problems experienced by the technology education department arise and how to stop them. The importance of the study is to find out how the problems faced by the students and the teachers alike arise, and how to stop them. The role of the researcher shall be to collect relevant standardized information from the most knowledgeable relevant sources. The participant’s roles shall therefore be to offer answers to relevant questions asked by the researcher. The type of data collected shall be limited since most of the materials required are going to be found in records. The methods used are going to be as per the instruments outlined below.

The instruments used shall be case studies, in-depth interviews and group interviews of the entire technology studies faculty, collection and qualitative analysis of the documents in record from previous surveys.

D         A research shall be carried out to find out why the problems and issues in the technology faculty occur, how they occur and how to control their occurrence. The research shall be quite extensive due to its active nature. The question shall be; how do the problems encountered in the technology studies faculty occur and how can their re-occurrence be controlled? The hypothesis therefore shall be to how the problems encountered in the technology studies faculty occur and how their re-occurrence be controlled?

The goal and importance of the study shall be to find out how the problems and issues in the technology education field can be solved. The role of the researcher here shall include sourcing for assistance from other parties since the coverage intended shall be extensive. The team of researchers shall carry out thorough and extensive person-to-person interviews of all the members of the technology education faculty; they shall ask relevant questions and use questionnaires where necessary. The participants have the sole role of offering honest and credible information to be used in the research (Blaxter, Hughes & Tight, 2006).

The types of data to be collected shall include the number of students with problems and issues in the faculty, what they believe the source of their problem to be and what they believe to be the problem with their teachers. The other type of data shall be the teachers’ problems with the students, what they believe the problem to be, and what they believe the source of the problem to be. The main method and instrument of data collection shall be total population data collection.

E          Since the research shall take time and the researcher shall be based on the school, the best method shall be the last one, the action research method since it shall be detailed and shall contain more updated and credible facts to work with. This research method shall also provide enough material to be documented in the thesis of a master’s paper in the future.

F          ‘How to research’ is one of the books by Blaxter, Hughes and Tight that talks about the three methods of research illustrated on the paper and how each is used. Creswell, in his book ‘Research design: qualitative, quantitative, and mixed method approaches’’ also discusses what type of research to be used in what type of research. ‘Your research project: a step-by-step guide for the first-time researcher’ is a book by Walliman that describes the methods of research required for every type of research work.
