We talked about using methodologies this time. How will you answer your research questions? What methods will you use? After we talked, I gathered that I needed to investigate how my main questions (about being connected in education and using PLN’s) are connected. What is the value of them being connected and why. Gathering peoples perceptions and analyzing them against a certain framework would do the trick. This could be done with some sort of “like-it” scale, agree/disagree to statements, rearranging statements according to preference, etc. Even letting people draw their PLN in the form of a mind map or another visual setting could clarify things and offer insights on how others perceive “being connected”.
