Action Research

What are the benefits of action research?  What experiences do you have conducting research that could help you in this process?  What questions do you have? What topic are you interested researching to increase effective use of technology in your classroom?

Action research allows an educator to utilize not one but a variety of sources to support and focus on a topic of research where a modified approach can reap effective and beneficial results to the educator and students involved.  Although I may have not conducted what constitutes an action research, I have had some experience with some research-based strategies. I do not have any particular question in mind with conducting an action research however I am curious as to how many action researches would be suggestive to perform in one school year. As a science teacher I am particularly interested in the use of simulation and virtual labs to teach science and to what extent will it generate learning and critical thinking skills. Indeed looking forward to conducting my research.
