Students– Are They Heard?

I just got done drafting a Zoomerang survey for upper school students. We talk in general about their interests and needs all the time– but it’s time to get some direct numbers and ideas. Questions I have so far include online identity information (how many email and IM and Skype addresses, and how many online profile pages, and how often used), as well as best and worst experiences with computers.

iPod Video PlayerOne idea for the “Advice in Motion” concept in yesterday’s post– a competition for students to create recommendations for others about safe and productive online communications and networking. We might offer a new iPod Video player to the student who creates the best set of recommendations and guidelines, with supporting examples. We’ll also have runner-up prizes, and then create a 2005/2006 composite document for all upper school students. Next year, we’d hold the competition again in a way that builds on this year’s event.

I like this idea– challenge students to become authorities, and let the expert users think about what is best for all.
