How the research project embodied the qualities and goals of action Research In their research project “Learning Classroom Management Through Web-Based Case Instruction: Implications for Early Childhood Teacher Education”, Lee and Choi embodied most of the qualities of action research. Unlike other types of research studies, the major goal of a research study is to improve teacher’s teaching practice and promote the learning outcomes as well as the behavior of students in a classroom environment. This research project embodied this goal because it sought to improve teaching and learning experience by designing an educational method and tool that prospective teachers would use to expound on their concept of classroom management beyond the specified …show more content…
Additionally, action research seeks to improve educational processes and teaching practice by focusing on the areas that need continued improvement. Lee and Choi embodied this in their research project by developing a web-based instruction tool to help prospective teachers to understand the dilemmas and challenges that practicing teachers confront and learn how to enhance their classroom management skills. Researcher’s Assumptions about the qualities of action research and the appropriateness of action research to the research topic The researchers of this research project assumed that action research is always collaborative and that’s why they worked collectively to address the problems that practice teachers face when teaching and managing their classrooms. In addition, the researchers assumed that action research is the effective interactive method that could be used to collect the information needed to explore teaching and enhance curriculum development while improving student behavior and learning outcomes in a classroom environment. The researchers also assumed that action research is always participative by including 30 female protective teachers as participants …show more content…
The themes of the research were (1) Helping prospective teachers overcome the dilemmas confronted by practicing teachers in managing their classrooms; (2) Helping prospective teachers the need for a thoughtful understanding of contexts in teaching practice; and (3) Helping prospective teachers improve their decision-making rationale based on multiple perspectives and stakeholders as well as applying theories and ideas in problem solving. Findings and conclusions of the Research study Results of the research study indicated that web-based case instruction improves awareness on multiple perspectives among the students; helps prospective teachers explore various ways of problem solving; and justify their positions based on effective engagement. The research study concluded that the web-based case instructional tool is the effective way of helping prospective teachers of early childhood schools improve on their teaching practice and expand their skills of classroom management due to the advanced technology. however, researchers of the study conceded that there is need for instructional designers and teacher educators to make further explorations on the findings in order to help prospective teachers consider all stakeholder perspectives in their decision-making
