IDSE101 – Research Plan – Getting to the heart of Alternative Education

From The Alternative Education Research Team of Alex Wykoff, James Lewis, and Kurt Hanley:

For this quarter, as part of our studies in Interaction Design Research and Synthesis, we have selected to explore the field of education. In particular the experience of alternative education schools for students who are at-risk, or have already been through the justice system.

Seeing as how this is something that none of our team members have experienced directly, our first order of business is research. The attached research plan is our attempt to organize our thoughts around this process and make sure we are setting up scenarios for our subjects to share data which will help us lead to insights down the road.
