Outcome 5. Student Enquiry System

The Students Enquire System has the aim of asking students and trainees, in order to learn about the IT tools and devices they use, and the way they use them in their studies. It is vital to get to know not only that facts but also their opinion on the usability of these tools for they are the ones who experience the advantages and disadvantages of them.

In this project we have created a questionnaire, in all the languages of the project. There is an online version of the Students Enquire System.

The questionnaire can not be representative as for the whole student community of a certain country but can create a small sample of different students, thus avoiding the unwished one-sidedness In total it was filled in by 300 students.

How can, should and might answers to these questions impact the policy planning process? There is a lack of consensus on what can and/or should be measured, and how this measurement can and should take place.

Outcome 1. SWOT Analysis

The challenge launched by UNESCO is the use and utilization of New Technologies of Information and Communication to provide students with the tools and knowledge necessary for the 21st century.
In this project we have created a questionnaire, in all the languages of the project.
The questionnaire is aiming at providing a structured view on what medias are used in the partner organisations and related organisation. How they are taught as well as what the staff and the students are realizing and thinking about it. Are those standards and experiences very different from each other or are they comparable? Is the pedagogy trained hard-and software up to date and sufficient and are the circumstances and methods to teach the medias good enough?
It is a survey - not a through statistical analysis. But it gives the partners useful hints about the environment in which they are actively teaching new technologies, and also allows a first overview of the Strengths, Weaknesses,  Opportunities, and Threats involved in the area.
