Reflective note on Ethnographic Interviewing are data entry work
The name of the participant interviewed has been replaced with a pseudonym.
In most of our fieldwork and conversations including our interview with the school principal, the recurring theme that seemed to emerge was that of a ‘colonial mentality’. This broad category itself covered aspects of culture, language and lifestyle. The colonial mentality in essence signifies that the colonizer believes their core values to be superior to the colonized whilst the colonized feels a sense of inherent inferiority in terms of culture and expresses this ‘dependency’ on the colonizer and adds that when the ‘colonizer’ is found in a setting where their ideal values are challenged by those in the colonized state, they may take upon the role of a “messiah” – a savior; something that was evident in the interview as Salazar, UK resident himself, said “One of the problems with ‘Pakis’ is that people don’t follow rules cause they don’t think they apply to them” and therefore, the messiah may resort to practices similar to “child-rearing” to bring about a change “You have to form character, that’s what it’s all about. I am not a disciplinarian, but this is common sense”. Furthermore, Salazar added; supporting the notion of language, “If I go to a country, I try to learn their language … there’s no harm in learning. Thing is even their (Pakistanis) ancestors never wanted to learn themselves” – therefore this ‘gap’ in general values that Pakistanis exhibited directed his position to be a principal “I came to this school because it seemed like a challenge level to keep me interested”. The aspect of language and lifestyle – this ‘dependency’ was further supported by the fieldwork where once I conversed with a 5th grader who was initially speaking in Urdu but shifted her accent when speaking to me as well as these parents I talked to who explained their satisfaction with the school because it “resembled the ones their children studied in UK”. This interview helped clarify the sense of ‘uniqueness’ that attracted most parents and students to the school because the values being inculcated in the school were ‘marketed’ as ‘different’ “I have to have a stomach for fight; there’s one culture I supervise within the school but another that I have to make sure stays outside the school gates”. However, during the process of the interview one ethical dilemma that I experienced was when Salazar started to use swear words for the kind of attitudes some parents may show “this one mother thinks her English is better than mine”. It made me uneasy in terms that my niece and nephew study in this school. I felt torn between protecting my participant and sharing this with my sister in law and brother, granted I know how ‘finicky’ they can be about minuscule things pertaining to the kids’ institute. However, I resolved it by clearing that I need to separate my relationship with the school and in this time period only look at it through the lens of an ethnographer whilst protecting my participants from my personal relatives.
Student experiences of conducting interviews online are data entry work
The plan was to conduct a semi-structured/informal interview on my 4th visit field visit. The attendance of students was irregular. I wasn’t sure if the student whom I wanted to interview would be present, so I kept the flexibility of the interviewee under consideration. Irregular attendance was a challenge for me. The ideal time to have an informal one to one interview would be when their instructor gives them the “practice time”. This is when they either chose to practice “thread” or “mehndi design”. The challenge of opting for this strategy was that I had to be a careful listener because I couldn’t write nor record the interview. Since the class has no age group requirement older female students mostly single mothers were taking this course so they can get a job as a beautician or open their own salon. Young students who were unmarried or newly married were concerned about grooming themselves or being “in shape” to be acceptable in society.
The interview had three major themes: Gender, Patriarchal Culture, and Stigmatization. I conducted one intentional and one unintentional interview. The first interview was with a student while she applied Mehendi on my hand. She is a daughter, eldest sister and was not able to continue her studies after intermediate because of financial issues. Though she said that she wants to work as a beautician, most of her conversation was about girls being well-groomed so that they are accepted by men; beauty is essential to good marriage proposals. Men in society look for “physical desirability” and females who lack it are stigmatized. Enrolling in a free of cost course (when she cannot afford frequent beauty parlor visits) she can ensure her skin, hair, and body will improve after the duration of 6 months. The second unintentional interview; after conducting my first interview I took out my laptop to write down about the interview. A student named Deeba came to me and asked “yeah surface pro hay? Mere bhai kay pass bhi asa hay”. Since the second visit, I had been trying to have a conversation with her because she seemed different from most of the students, but she wouldn’t talk to me. My laptop acted as an
icebreaker. Deeba is the only student in the class who belongs to a financially strong family.
Being stigmatized for unattractive looks complicates their social life and interactions. For Deeba beauty coincides with maturity, for Shumaila it coincides with good proposals. Her verdict is representing all unmarried girls in this class who signed up this free course for “grooming”. Drawing evidence from literature, Alcoff suggests a sense of our own body reflects the way it is perceived by others (patriarchy). Critiqued by most feminists, Freud’s famous dictum “Anatomy is destiny” fits in here.
An ethical dilemma was faced while conducting interviews. Personal information shared by them was without an official consent signed. I plan to address it by asking them to sign a consent form which ensures that this information will be used by keeping their identity anonyms.
Sample interview examples are data entry work
Me: how are you?
Interviewee: I am well Alhamdulilah
Me: What is your qualification?
Interviewee: I am an undergraduate student in computer science in IBA Sukkur University. I am also mathematics instructor at MRC Centre (Mathematics resource Centre) tutoring mathematics and calculus classes over there to those students who are specifically enhance their mathematics skills. (staff and student)
Me: Where are you from?
Interviewee: I am from Sukkur basically, Sukkur city mje acha lagta hai. Yahan k log both simple hain or dedicated hain.
Me: Please tell us about your experiences in online learning in COVID-19?
Interviewee: My name is Hassan Qureshi ( male) I am an undergraduate student in computer science in IBA Sukkur University, at the same time, I am also mathematics instructor at MRC Centre ( Mathematics resource Centre ) tutoring mathematics and calculus classes over there to those students who are specifically enhance their mathematics skills. I am learning a lot of my courses online because of this COVID-19 health risk and my university has completely completely closed, I study from home, I usually take classes at home through zoom explain in a laughing way hahaha . The learning experience through technology is quite interesting as whenever we are taking online classes on zoom, our all classmates attentively present over there online, the ask questions from the instructor in the comment bar and sometime create a lot of jokes over there so the classroom environment seems exciting, I really enjoyed online session because I always like technology and my undergraduate degree is also in computer, I am more into computer, gadget learning and technology stuff as well. I always take extra care that I should have strong internet connection because my friends are also supporting me giving me good internet facility (happy)
Me: Are you enjoying learning online?
Interviewee: haan mein online learning pasand hai (chuckle) because online learning provides me ownership of my own learning in a personalize way. If I do not know something, I just use google to describe things for me, google provides me a platform of facilitator and students online where I meet online through email communication, or just phone call them, I use Facebook and twitter. This is how technology is teaching us learning. Online learning k liye technological literate hona zaroori hai (smiling). I am enjoying teaching mathematics to juniors online and learning as well. I am also conducting exams online too in the form quiz and written assignment as well. I am enjoying this new transition online while working from home.
Me: what kind of challenges you are facing online learning while taking classes?
Interviewee: I always face some kind challenges while taking classes online through zoom and Microsoft team and other tool such as google classroom, easy class, khan academy as well. First, I am unaware of both these two online learning platforms then I had again taken help from google and watched some of the tutorials and now I am easily using it. Internet signals is also one of the issues as well. I am missing on campus exposure and learning in real classroom (sad)
Me: what are other challenges as well that you are facing?
Interviewee: being at home and not going outside make me feel sad and facing some mental health issues which is directly affected on my studies. I am taking online courses on mental health awareness which coursera has provided us during this COVID-19. Other thing is that I do not concentrate on online classes because a lot of my family members are always try to talk to me during my classes because I was sitting in an open room where everybody can easily come and see me and I was feeling conscious that my voice will be audible if my mic would be open that is one of the issue too ( concerned), financing is also one of the issues during this lockdown, however main online earning kar raha houn (laughing)
Me: what kind of suggestion you want to give to those who are experiencing online learning in this transition?
Interviewee: I feel that one must have good understanding of using online learning tools and must have interest of technological literacy such as using google search effectively while learning and this is the era of technology where everybody have mobile phone, tablet, and internet at their own hand and everybody is using internet and google search, so information is available on a finger tips. So one must be able to learn and practice 21 century learning skills ( please google it hahaha ) see my friend, this is the era of technology where people are also meeting online too and talking and sharing information with each other online, so one must welcome new culture of online learning as well but do not forget the learning which is happened physically in campus as well. I believe that life after COVID-19 will not remain the same, so we must welcome new online learning and teaching phase in our educational institution and must ready for new changes in education paradigm, educational emergencies as well ( laughing).
Me: Thank you so much for giving me your 20 minutes regarding this interview, I have really learnt a lot of you and want to share your information with my instructor as I have to submit my assignment, ( smiling). As I have recorded your interview with your permission and taking notes on diary.
Students experiences as research methodology are the data entry work
We all group members had worked on our school project by understanding and solving the challenges or problems that the school is facing, so we had visited Government Elementary Girls Schools (GEGS) Gohawa where we had identified students are facing problems in reading comprehension in grade 1,
So reading comprehension is one of the challenge that the school is facing, we group members are facilitating the school as how they can improve students reading comprehension abilities so that they will be able to learn better at their own pace or personalize way as a life long learning passion by inculcating a passion of story telling so that students will be in a phase of enjoying stories at the same time reading comprehension will improve as well.
In order to solve it the problem effectively we had used a methodology which is a mixed method methodology in order to diagnose a problem. Mixed methodology is an instrument in which we have used in our school project and included the qualitative approach and quantitative approach as well.
In qualitative approach, we had decided to explore the problems through observation of the students learning, we had visited in the class and got a deeper understanding of observing students that whether they were able to read the text in an effective manner or not and moreover we had also conducted unstructured interview with the class teachers of 2,3,7 and the school principal as well. Through qualitative analysis, we came up with the certain issues that the school was facing such as pedagogy or teachers way of teaching methodology say for example that the teachers were unaware of teaching reading skills among students , Secondly the classroom management issues were also a problem that the teachers were faced because there were a lot of student strength in one class that it was very difficult for teachers to manage the classroom and giving proper attention to each students as well by considering their learning needs and another issue is the school overall culture which highlighted the fact that the school environment was not conducive towards students learning.
Moreover, we had also conducted semi structured interview which were conducted with class 1 and 2 of Urdu teachers the overall purpose was to understand what pedagogy (the art of teaching) they are adopting in the classroom. Based on the interview process, we had designed a rubric which was based on teacher efficacy, self efficacy and collective teacher efficacy. Before filling this rubric, we had decided to engage teachers in team building activities. The overall purpose of this team building activity is to develop cooperation, teamwork, helping each other in the school environment so that teachers effectively helping other teachers and their students in the teaching and learning situation. In order to facilitate teachers effectively, we had facilitated teachers for filling the rubric and also brainstorming the rubric on the board as well just to facilitate teachers. We had observed the teacher’s behaviour hesitant or overconfident which we came to know while filling the rubric which help us to conduct focus group discussion with the teachers and the principal. The overall purpose of this activity is to come up with the strategies and the solutions for improving class reading and comprehension abilities.
There are some of the limitation such as we were unable to observe the teacher’s classes as some teachers were reluctant to observe and participate in the interviews. Furthermore, the teachers were not revealing the information during the interview process which was also highlighted in our diagnoses and recorded in a notes as well. We group members just wanted to facilitate teachers constructively by listening their views with the patience of open perspectives. Moreover, most of the teachers were doing revision for students because of final exams would be held in March.
In the quantitative approach, we have used the empirical data set on the level of understanding of Urdu comprehension skills for class 1 to 3 through sample random technique method, the sample random technique method is about that the participant just pick sampling randomly in a group of large sample is well so we had asked students to read a loud during the test and then solve the questions as well based on their comprehension. Moreover, we had asked students of class three to solve the test on the paper, during our school visit, 2, 8, and out of 10 students were randomly selected from class 2 while the 2 students were Handan picked by the class teacher in order to participate in this diagnostic process effectively. In order to take our understanding further, we had diagnosed the severity of the problem identified, tests for grade 1 (conducted in 1 & 2) and 2 (conducted in 2 & 3) were designed based on the books developed by TCF (Appendix I). 44 out of 82 Class 1, 52 out of 85 Class 2 and 30 out of 92 students participated in the test. The results revealed that the problem starts at the primary level in the school.
Data Analysis are the data entry work
Since, we group members had not observed the teachers pedagogy or teachers teaching methods that they were using in the classroom, we came to know that students were unable to read and comprehend effectively through LND test. We had identified that the students were engaged in rote learning as a learning practices rather than reading the actual passage as what it was about. Furthermore, the interview process had facilitated us to understand teachers’ pedagogical practices while considering the perception of students and the principal. So we had decided to develop a deliverable tool kit which will facilitate teachers and the principal to work on students reading comprehension skills and and the same time principal and teachers will get an opportunity to exercise their cooperative leadership in the school community as well.
Working on online project report example are the data entry work
The broader focus of our project is to improve students’ learning outcomes by gauging their understanding of the learnt concepts. Besides using traditional paper-pencil based tests to assess students, through our project, we want to introduce progressive forms of formative assessments to help teachers identify the gaps in the knowledge of their students. We define progressive formative assessments as project-based assessments and student portfolios that teachers can use to collect information on students’ progress based on which they can give comprehensive feedback to students and their parents for better learning outcomes. Lessons plans will be used to introduce these new forms of assessments to assist teachers in knowing when to introduce progressive formative assessments into their lessons.
Our primary focus is on formative assessments because the Punjab Examination Commission (PEC) has recently decided to shift its energies to School Based Assessments (SBAs) and it requires a move from summative assessments to formative assessments. Additionally, due to COVID-19, since there is a need for modifying the curriculum and Punjab is planning on introducing an accelerated curriculum with revised SLOs, PEC has diverted its attention towards formative assessments as compared to summative assessments. Hence, our project seeks to propose more updated and revised assessment guidelines to teachers so they may assess students in a non-traditional manner.
