Biography

Jane M. Legacy's grant/research for the last 16 years has evolved around leadership, change, and technology infusion. This includes the impact of "Integration of Technology into the Curriculum" on student achievement and "attitude, anytime, anywhere e-Learning", national student and teacher technology standards for the United States, online education, K-12 preservice professional development in online teaching, instructional design, universal design and design thinking. Her online focus is based on quality matters research and evaluations for online environments.

Legacy is interested in examining the attrition and retention of students in a technology-based courses using a new course design model, "Labryd". Legacy's face to face instructional strategy research is now focused on a new model of "Labryd" design for the face to face classroom to explore the "Labryd" design pilot viability as an option for student and teacher learning experience in the future. This new "Labryd" design combines flipped classroom strategies, personal learning and project based management couple with the 21st-century skills (critical thinking, creativity, decision making).

Research Interests

As an educator in teacher preparation I am interested in examining the attrition and retention of students in a technology based courses using a new course design model- Labryd. Jane is currently working on a pilot of the labryd course design that combines flipped classroom strategies, personal learning and project based management couple with the 21st century skills ((critical thinking, creativity, decision making). This method may contribute to attrition and retention in technology course and increase student self efficacy with technology. 

 

Guiding research question:

How can we change the current face to face classroom to meet the needs of our current students as well as increase student accountability and self efficacy.
