Doctoral students and professors at four universities have initiated an on-going assessment of the research and publication on technology through a longitudinal survey of education journals. The purpose of this assessment is to characterize, using selected key criteria, the published research on technology in education. This research seeks to identify trends in areas of research, methodology, and types of technology in an effort to shape and improve future research and publication. This session will summarize the first stage of research, surveying articles published between 2004 and 2006 in ten key technology journals and content-area journals. The panel, comprised of students and professors from the University of Virginia, the University of Florida, Iowa State University, and George Mason University, will provide a detailed description of the methodology and findings to date. The audience will be invited to discuss the findings and implications for future research that will move the field of educational technology forward.
