I did a survey with my students on the first day of class. In this, I asked students if they had used specific programs or apps in school before. I excluded the six students I had from last year. Here were my results:
- Four percent had used Google documents
- Three percent had used presentation software
- Two percent had recorded audio, though none of them had edited it or posted the audio to a podcast or a blog.
- Two percent had used Edmodo to interact online.
- None had edited video, created a blog, used a concept mapping program, worked on Scratch (or any other programming), developed a simulation or analyzed information on a spreadsheet.
- Sixty-seven percent had used Jamestown Reading Intervention
- Forty percent had used Study Island
- Thirty-five percent had used Success Maker
- Twenty-six percent had used Accelerated Reader
