Abstract

This paper describes the development of a technology-enhanced learning environment, Alien Rescue, which has been modified specifically to support approaches for conducting design-based research (DBR). DBR is an approach to research that emphasizes the generation of theory by evaluating reiterative enhancements to an instructional innovation within authentic settings. The design of Alien Rescue intends to overcome many of the challenges of implementing DBR while providing a technical infrastructure that supports frequent iteration and research methodologies commonly associated with DBR. A summary of the current Alien Rescue development model is presented along with a discussion of potential future DBR studies that will leverage the technical architecture.
