The question I had to ask myself was, can I commit to this question? Will this question warrant the research that I need, to prove my point? My answer to these questions was yes. I feel that my innovation plan is so closely related to what I do, so I’m very passionate about this topic. I believe that working on my innovation plan has really helped me to prepare for my action research topic selection. With the two literature reviews, that I’ve done in the past, I have been able to find countless sources and studies.
The topic of my action research is going to being ePortfolio usage, with students in the secondary level. The purpose for this is to determine whether or not this is a tool that can help prepare them for the future of becoming a lifelong learners and learning how to use and problem solve tools used in the 21st century. My fundamental research question is, how do ePortfolios help to prepare high school students for their post-secondary lives? I plan on using a qualitative and quantitative approach. I’d like to be able to observe how ePortfolio implementation is going, but I’d also like to get feedback from those using them and and how have used them.
