While some of the survey results did not surprise the participating teachers, there were some that did come as a surprise. In this clip both secondary and primary school teachers discuss some of the survey results that surprised them and why some of the student responses were surprising.
- What did you find surprising about the survey results? How was this different to what you expected?
- The teachers were surprised by the lack of student use of technology to ‘create’. What do we mean by using technology to ‘create’? And how do we encourage students to ‘create’ more or in different ways? Is this in fact necessary?
- How many of your students are concerned with their online identity and community? Is this an issue? How might we use their participation in these communities in the classroom?
- How do we address issues of equity issues of access to technology?
