Glen Bull's call for a research agenda for one-to-many computing (page 42 of this issue) raises a larger question: what is the status of a research agenda within education technology? This article first considers what a research agenda is in general. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines research as studious inquiry or examination. (There's more to the definition than that, but this is a good starting point.) It further defines agenda as a list or outline of things to be considered or done. So if a research agenda is wanted in Ed Tech, first a list of, say, options for or types of studious inquiry or examination of education technology needs to be made. This article asserts a research agenda can help guide that community of scholars. A researcher in any of these other, highly varied fields benefits from having a specific vision or a set of goals for the types of research that will help his or her field advance more efficiently and effectively. Furthermore, a research agenda helps to outline particular steps to be taken and particular methodologies to be used. It concludes that Bull's article this month meets a number of the criteria discussed in this article, and he should be commended for it. Now it is time for everyone else to throw their hats into the ring--everyone is a part of this community of scholars and everyone must work together to bring about the research, and ultimately the changes, that everyone wishes to see in schools. Appended to this article is: M. D. Roblyer and Gerald A. Knezek's New Millennium Research for Educational Technology: A Call for a National Research Agenda published in the v36 n1 Fall 2003 (p60-76) issue of ISTE's Journal of Research on Technology in Education.
