Summary This paper addresses the use of available advanced technology for datageneration and analysis in relation to research in science(and other)classrooms. It is argued that available technologies enable a new level ofalignment between research methodology and theory. Examples areprovided of the types of complex data sets and associated analyses madepossible by the new technologies. This heightened methodologicalcapacity matches the contemporary diversity and sophistication of ourtheories of learning and instruction. The interdependence of methodologyand theory is illustrated using the examples of distributed cognition,variation theory and complexity theory. In particular, examples areprovided of multiple layers of complementary analyses made possible byadvances in video analysis software. This paper addresses the extent towhich available technologies support methodological approaches capableof accommodating and interrogating contemporary theories of learningand instruction in ways not previously possible.
