Towards the the end of 2010 when we as a college had been involved in the DEECD iPads for Learning Trial, i thought it may be a good idea to survey the students on their thoughts about using iPads in class. The results that we gained from that survey gave us a great indication of how the students were feeling towards using a piece of mobile technology to assist their learning.
5 weeks in to our new 1:1 iPad program, we decided to gain a greater understanding of what our students were feeling this time around, as some of them were in involved in the DEECD trial.
The questions asked of the students were pretty basic and generic and as already mentioned, the student’s had only been involved in this 1:1 iPad program for 5 weeks when this survey was asked of them.
The results as you can see are pretty positive on the whole, indicating to us as a college that the decision we made to not only go 1:1 iPads over MacBooks, but to also go down a BYOD model, was the right choice for our setting, students, and community.
So. Below i have embedded the survey results via a Keynote that i created and then uploaded to Slide Share. Hopefully you find some of this data useful in your own settings!
