Design-Based Research and Technology-Enhanced Learning Environments


Educational Technology Research and Development Volume 53, Number 4, ISSN 1042-1629


During the past decade, design-based research has demonstrated its potential as a methodology suitable to both research and design of technology-enhanced learning environments (TELEs). In this paper, we define and identify characteristics of design-based research, describe the importance of design-based research for the development of TELEs, propose principles for implementing design-based research with TELEs, and discuss future challenges of using this methodology.
