Update on Student attitudes towards learning with technology study

21 02 2013

We have had a great response so far on our initial request for schools to participate. However, there is room for additional schools should you want to get in on this project. There have also been requests for permission to administer the survey to the middle school students. I have talked this over with our research team and they are onboard with this and we will make some slight adjustments to the instrument so that it can be administered to students from 5th grade to 12th. This is exciting as this will also allow us to see patterns that might emerge as students go through their academic career.

If you are interested in joining the study, simply respond to this email and I will be providing additional information on how to access and administer the assessment. Remember, YOUR school will have full access to YOUR school’s raw data and summary report as produced by Survey Monkey which will allow you to perform your own analysis as well as compare your school’s profile with the general findings from the study. Additionally, no school identifying information will be included in the published findings.

The final outcome of this study is to produce a paper to be submitted for publication in a peer reviewed journal in the education/edtech field. There will be four authors on this paper as this is part of a research tutorial with 3 three student researchers from Greenhill School. We are excited about the project and look forward to getting the surveys out to participating schools within the next couple of weeks.

We look forward to working and learning with you.
