Last year I did a simple survey with pupils from Primary 1 to 6 on their favourite devices for learning in classroom. Laptop/netbook was their favourite device. This year I did another similar survey with a smaller group of students (and ex-students) in Facebook. Laptop/Netbook retains the students’ top choice. Despite the rise of tablets in 2011, it remains as the ‘sub ‘ device, clinching the second place.
Interestingly, Interactive White Board seems to be gaining popularity among students, overtaking the iPod and mobile phone as the third choice. Is IWB is next big thing or fad?
Update: iPod, mobile phone and gaming console just overtook the IWB. This is an ongoing Facebook ‘Question’ 🙂
I end my 6 months hiatus with a great news: VoiceThread Mobile is out! I just installed it on my iPhone and iPad and it works wonderfully. Will experiment with some students in school soon. One slight disappointment is I wasn’t able to doodle. Did I miss anything?
Update: Doodling works 🙂
And Steve Jobs, without you all these couldn’t have happened. We will miss you.
I did a simple survey with pupils from Primary 1 to 6 on their favourite devices for learning in classroom. The survey result from 267 kids shows that laptop/netbook is still their favourite device despite the tremendous popularity of the Apple iPad, which takes the second place. It’s a close fight between Mobile phone and iPod Touch for the third. I also noticed kids are also interested in E-Reader and IWB. They shown little love for digital cameras and voice recorders though.
I think it’s a useful student perception survey if the school is planning for 1:1 implementation. I guess my next survey will be for teachers 🙂
