You are invited to participate in a research study that aims to evaluate a tool for use in timeline creation activities in K-12 social studies classrooms.
Our research study will utilize pre and post surveys, along with 3 guided activities to complete. Additionally, there is the option to be invited to a focus group. The focus group will last up to 60 minutes, be conducted over University of Michigan Zoom, and will be recorded. We may also ask to observe your use of the tool by sharing your screen. You may participate in as many of these study segments as you wish.
We realize that your time is valuable and your opinions are important to us. As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a $20 gift card for participating in the pre and post surveys, and a $30 gift card for each focus group you choose to participate in.
