Despite the drastic change to school environments due to the COVID- 19 pandemic, it is still important that educational technology researchers conduct school-based research to understand the impact of technology in an authentic learning context (e.g., in-vivo classroom experiments), even remotely. However, unique challenges exist when conducting classroom studies remotely, such as the difficulty of observing teacher-student interactions. Based on our own experience of running in-person and remote classroom studies with Intelligent Tutoring Systems and interviews with school teachers, we developed a practical framework that researchers can use for navigating classroom studies conducted remotely. The framework offers guiding questions that will help address unique challenges and teacher concerns in remote classroom research.
