As the world’s educational systems are faced with unprecedented challenges, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our Center tries to figure out what are the best strategies for making on-line learning both efficient and inspiring.
The project is aimed at answering the following research questions:
- How do adolescents perceive on-line learning and what do they actually think of on-line learning experience?
- How do teachers perceive on-line learning?
- Do teachers and students see the same problems and challenges in on-line learning or do they have different experience?
- What are the best strategies for designing digital learning environments? What can be done to make the on-line process more interactive and inspiring?
Research methods include on-line interviews and questionnaires as well as two scales:
- Impact of Event Scale – Revised (IES-R) (Weiss & Marmar, 1997);
- Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (Shraw, Gregory and Dennison, R. Sperling, 1994).
The first stage of the research is to be completed in May, 2021.
