In this activity you are going to conduct a survey to research and report on the access that students on your campus have to the internet.
1 Design a five-question survey on the type and availability of access to the Internet and how students would rate their level of skill in using the particular technology.
The target audience for your survey is students studying on your campus.
You can create the survey with any software – just as long as the participants can complete it electronically (preferably online). Survey Monkey and Google Forms are free online survey tools that you can use.
2 Get at least 30 students to complete your survey.
3 Collate the data using MS Excel.
4 Present the feedback/responses in a graph.
5 Interpret and create a presentation on your findings (using MS PowerPoint or Prezi). Your presentation must include your survey questions, the response graph and answer the following questions:
What did the survey show in terms of accessibility?
Did all students surveyed have access to the Internet outside of campus?
If so, what was the most common means of access?
If not, why do you think this is the case?
Did socio-economic factors play a role in your findings?
Did everyone have the same level of skill in using technology?
Was there a correlation between the level of access available and skills?
Create a blog entry titled Digital Access, provide a link to the online survey, and attach the graphs and PowerPoint presentation.
