Some of the most effective ways of feedback that have been seen throughout the literature are surveys and focus groups:
- Anonymous proficiency and technology attitude questionnaire through Survey monkey for staff, teachers, and administration
- Small focus groups from sampling of staff across all programs and subject areas to understand current iPad implementation conducted by a staff member that is not administration or IT/tech specialist to increase anonymity. Interviewer could sign a document that says the surveyor would keep participants anonymous, so full disclosure could be achieved.
Analysis of results:
- Analyzed according to a likert scale as an indicator of proficiency and attitude.
- Focus group qualitative responses could be assessed against school's action plans, IB program practices, and/or against a framework adopted by the school (such as ISTE, SAMR, or the 4 C's of 21st century skills).
- Results could be broken down into IB program and subject area, considering correlations o proficiencies and attitudes to the focus group responses.
Sharing the results:
- Visuals and a brief summary report should first be shared with the technology committee and administration.
- Sharing with the staff should occur to provide transparency and accountability to the 1:1 iPad initiative vision.
- Sharing with stakeholders would provide further accountability and an opportunity for feedback.
