Technology in the classroom survey

Discussion in 'Primary' started by gailrobinson, Oct 18, 2010.

  1. The TES is working with the E-Learning Foundation to find out more about your use of technology in the classroom.

    We'd really appreciate it if you could take two minutes to answer a few questions.

    Everybody who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Amazon gift vouchers we've got to give away.

    NB: Any information you give will be anonymous.
    Take the survey now
    Many thanks for your time

    I know I'm a notorious pedant but surely the first question should have used the word 'more' rather than 'most'.

    Come on, TES. Where are you?
  4. I also found this an awkward question:
    <h3 class="qHeader">When children have no access to the internet at the home are they...</h3>[​IMG]Seriously disadvantaged As I wanted to say "Slightly disadvantaged"
  5. Totally agree impulce I felt the same way about that question. I think this survery was very badly written.

    The E Learning Foundation talks about the 'I million of our most disadvantaage'd schoolchildren.
    It can't rustle up a decent questionnaire.

    I agree entirely.

    Come on, TES, you shouldn't be endorsing such a poorly designed questionnaire.

    "Sloppy design from someone who wants to confirm their opinion. Everything about it is stupid".
    So says mr inky because "there are no neutral options, the scaling is too narrow and the grammar's ****"

    [mr inky has been known to lecture on research methods and he says that this one wouldn't have got out of the classroom]

    Its changed! Not that it's any better.

    This question has gone. How peculiar.

    The whole thing's changed. Now you can only proceed if you enter the prize draw.
    Come on, Gail - what's this all about?
  14. HI inky
    If the survey recognises that you have already completed it then it won't let you do it again, which is probably why you're seeing a different view of it this time around.
    I will pass your comments on the phrasing of the survey on. Unfortunately it's very difficult to change the text once we've got responses in there.
  15. Dreadful survey.
    Quite clearly designed to give results the writer seems to be looking for. I think my Y6 class could have done a far better job.
    Shame on you TES for being half asleep in supporting this shoddy piece of work.
  16. Hi Gailrobinson,
    I tried to take your survey, but it said it is now closed. I am a student at Plymouth University and I have created a blog on Classroom Technology, www.jade-sadler.blogspot.com
    I hope this could help with any research, as I couldn't fill out the survey. There is lots of ideas on there (and to go on there) and also lots of teachers and e-learning specialists viewing my blog. So hopefully it will help you!
    If you want to know something or need a question answering, please leave a comment and I will try my best to answer it or get my views to answer it.
