Zoomobile Plansbook is a case study which presents research entailing a project aimed at improving human-wildlife interrelationship. Moreover, the program is expected to educate community members on how to interact with wildlife; as a means of conserving an ecosystem. This discussion depicts a primary research critique, which addresses the effectiveness of primary sources of information used for its consequent conclusion and analysis. As noted above, Zoomobile is a program which provides fun activities involving community members and hence should have a wide target market.
The Plansbook assigns information gathering to teachers who are part of the main stakeholders for the program. The survey was intended to learn more about sources of motivation for teachers in implementing the objectives of Zoomobile. According to the research, teachers were expected to provide information in domains that include; the style of education adopted by teachers, the preferred marketing styles as well as the general awareness of the Zoomobile program. It was prudent for the research to incorporate open and closed-ended questionnaires which provided the research with an appropriate platform of covering a huge number of teachers. However, it would be wise to note that motivation is a qualitative variable which is best measured using qualitative tools of analysis. In this case, it would be practically relevant for the research to use observation in measuring motivation of teachers with reference to Zoomobile expectations.
According to the Plansbook, it was noted that the main teaching tendency among teachers was the use of guest speakers. The research has presented this data in an effective way which appeals to audiences of all literacy levels. For instance, the use of a pie chart – indicating the likelihood of teachers to use guest speakers – was appealing to non-expert audiences due to its comprehensible format of presentation. However, the research notes that there is extensive use of the internet as a tool of brainstorming in most classrooms. Zoomobile program would also recommend the use of the internet as an information source which is instrumental in information gathering. However, since the implementation framework of the program entails a practical experience, it would have been wise to measure alternative sources of information aside from the internet. For instance, the plansbook could introduce publishing of popular wildlife on booklets that contain information about an animal. This way, the program would be more interesting to children who are being encouraged to keep off the internet as a result of explicit content that is public accessible.
According to the interviews conducted in the research, the information sourced provided a crucial point of reference when it comes to leadership practices in the Johnson County community. According to this audience, the primary reason for arranging such public events was to ensure that community members enjoy the fun of being around wild animals. Teachers, on the other hand, were more focused on implementing an outdoor learning activity by allowing their students to participate in the Zoomobile program. However, the Plansbook fails to interview on the preparedness of leaders and teachers during cases of accidents caused by violent wildlife. This is a critical area of research as it would improve its levels of community acceptance which involves parents of the children.
The research presents findings whose primary source could be gauged on different perspectives which would either credit or discredit Zoomobile research project. The teaching tendencies – coupled with interviews and observations note that the research was substantially incomprehensive; in terms of information sources. It would be genuine to state that information supplied to the project was unexhausted as a variety of stakeholders were ignored in gathering primary data from affected audiences.
