Consider a question about a child or adolescent development that you find interesting. Then, identify three empirical articles that have attempted to answer the question. For example, perhaps you would like to understand whether playing Pokemon GO influences a teen’s academic achievement. You might find articles that attempted to answer that question by 1) interviewing teens who play Pokemon GO and ask them about their experiences, and their academics; 2) gathering academic achievement data on teens who play Pokemon GO and teens who do not play Pokemon GO and compare two; and 3) conducting brain scans on teens as they play Pokemon GO to determine if the results reveal brain activity that would promote academics.
This week you will examine how we can answer the same research question in many different ways. Once you find three research articles that pertain to your interest, write a brief reflection including the following:
· Present your question.
· Explain how each study tried to answer the question/topic, noting the strengths and weaknesses of each study
· Offer another suggestion or explain which approach you found the most useful and why.
Length: 12-15 slides
Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
