Question about results of survey
Posted June 13, 2012on:
I have been busy writing up parts of my dissertation and looking at the results I have received, in particular of the survey and I have a follow-up question for anyone that cares to answer it.
I asked in the survey how often participants used something they learned on Twitter in their planning/classroom and how often they shared something with other members of staff.
Where as many stated that they used resources for their own classrooms and teaching on a weekly basis, they shared information with colleagues less often!
Why do you think this is so?
I have heard two possible answers to this:
1) teachers feel that they don’t want to be singled out in the staffroom as the one that always has ideas and is seen to want to change things
2) teachers are more likely to be looking for specific help, such as lesson plans, on Twitter rather than information that could be used by the team they are working with in school, such as whole curriculum planning, policy making etc
What do you think?
