Abstract [en]

Teachers’ professional discussions have now expanded onto different platforms on social media. Collecting such digital open accessible data from social media brings new challenges for educational researchers. Teachers’ discussions on Facebook are the focus of this study and the methodological issues coming from capturing, managing and analyzing our data are explored.

Different social media generate different types of data and the difference between dialogical and monological communication becomes clear. Further, the issue of anonymity requires special attention, as one has to redefine what can be considered public information. As the data is relatively easy to gather, it can result in large quantities and a stratified sample of the data is suggested, both for qualitative and generalizable results.

This report aims to convey our findings but also raises some unresolved questions, for instance concerning the use of different modalities or future technological development.
