Collect data

Collect data

Use a range of methods to gather and document information guiding your decisions such as:

  • interviewing students – ask what they find helpful or makes a difference
  • gathering samples with and without the use of technology to compare outcomes
  • observing the student working without technology – consider the potential barriers that may arise, for example letter formation, mobility
  • observing the student using technology – is it manageable, able to be used independently, or does it require extra support?
  • taking photos to support evidence.

Use video

Use video

Make effective use of multi-media tools.

Use video to:

  • collect baseline data to show your student’s current learning (for example, a timed writing sample with your student using pen and paper)
  • collect trial data in comparative learning tasks to demonstrate the impact of the trialled technologies.

Use e-Portfolios
