Keeping a record
You will often need to keep a record when you are doing action research. This is so you will be able to remember what you have been doing and what you have found out. There are lots of different ways of keeping a record – for example, you could:
- talk into a tape recorder or dictaphone
- write notes
- keep a project diary or a journal
- put your ideas into a computer
- take photographs
- use video.
You might keep your own record. You might get someone to help you keep a record. You might keep a record together with other people working in your project. These are all good ways of doing things.
