I had an interesting thought today during a discussion with colleagues. We were talking about the conversations that students have in class and how we as teachers often miss the rich conversations students have about their learning.
I had been thinking of looking at the research question of "How can digital technologies help Year 13 Design and Photography students to self regulate their learning" so now I am wondering about how I could make it more along the lines of
1) "how can student conversations be a measure of self regulated learning in Year 13 Design and Photography?"

I am thinking of both digital and face to face conversations.

2) "how can student conversations in a blended learning environment be a measure of self regulated learning in Year 13 Design and Photography?"

3) "how can student conversations in a digital and collaborative environment be a measure of self regulated learning in Year 13 Design and Photography?"

Does that make sense? any ideas or suggestions.
Which option sounds best for the scope of this study?

I was thinking of measuring by looking at online conversations
conversations with myself and students
and having teacher observations with the other teacher focusing on the learning conversations between students

Is anyone specifically focusing on Year 13 students? I am looking at engagement, motivation... self regulation. #L3students #year13
