I want to give a huge THANKYOU to all those who participated in either Part One, Part Two or both parts of my research. I have completed it now and this is what is going to happen next.
I have closed the survey having reached the 100 participant target – You are ALL STARS for this.
I have collected the information for Part Two – You are DEFINITELY ALL STARS for that!
All data has been processed and graphs and charts created. These charts will be placed in the appendix of my MAEd Independent Studies paper and discussed within the paper itself.
The raw data collated by KwikSurveys will stay on their database but cannot be accessed by anyone other than myself and I have no intention to access it in the future.
The raw data for Part Two has been destroyed.
I will be continuing to write my dissertation for a deadline at the end of the year and will keep you updated on my progress. I also hope to put the results of my studies (and even the whole thing after marking) here or elsewhere on the web – I will let you know plans when they happen!
THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Take Care of yourselves,
As the title suggests I am putting a proposal together to do my dissertation for my MA Ed on the use and uses of social media by teachers and others in the world of education. This has been approved by my tutor as I cannot possibly do anything within the school I work in.
The dissertation is due to start in January 2012, but as this is a completely new medium for me I am going to get to work as soon as I can. After all, this is all new to me!
I hope to be able to do the following, with your help.
1) A survey, possibly through twtpoll (or any others that people may suggest), on why teachers use social media / which they use / how often, what teachers gain from using social media, what ultimately teachers feel that their students gain because they are using social media.
2) Delve into YOUR blogs etc for/as research.
3) Use this blog to ask questions and hopefully gain a fuller insight not only social media but technology in general, how it is used in the different curriculums around the world and what YOU are doing to help your students in their Internet World.
As some of you may already know, I have not really used technology and social media before, it is not used in my school – the computers have been broken for three years and phones etc are banned from the premises, and I have only been using Twitter, Facebook and this blog since the beginning of the summer.
I hope to be able to do an awful lot more in the future!
PLEASE HELP! I know that there is no way I will be able to achieve anything without the help of my PLN and any other teacher out there who can give five or ten minutes of their time every now and again.
I would love to hear from ANYONE who has any ideas / suggestions / help and particularly support.
