Findings

  1. 1. Findings on Survey
  2. 2. Hypothesis <ul><li>There are 3 hypotheses </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do the students use the blogs for learning? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do the students act as the lurker in the blogs? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do the blog builders and blog readers build up the inherent environment for learning or knowledge building? </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Hypothesis 1 (1) <ul><li>Summaries the data from questions in part (a), (b), (c) and (d) to obtain the following results </li></ul><ul><li>Apparently, there are 54 students out of 57 students spent at least 1 hour per week to surf the Internet </li></ul><ul><li>Also, only 46 students read and/or write the weblogs </li></ul>
  4. 4. Hypothesis 1 (2) <ul><li>Table A: How long the students read the weblogs per week </li></ul><ul><li>It shows 46 students (80.7%) read the weblogs </li></ul>
  5. 5. Hypothesis 1 (3) <ul><li>Table B: Content of weblogs read by students </li></ul><ul><li>It shows the students use the weblogs to keep the friendships, </li></ul>rather than learning
  6. 6. Hypothesis 1 (4) <ul><li>Table C: How long the students write the weblogs per week </li></ul><ul><li>It shows 46 students (80.7%) write the weblogs </li></ul>
  7. 7. Hypothesis 1 (5) <ul><li>Table D: Content of weblogs written by students </li></ul><ul><li>It also shows the students write the weblogs to keep the friendships, say writing personal diary </li></ul>
  8. 8. Hypothesis 1 (6) <ul><li>From Table B and Table D, we observe that the students really uses weblog for either sharing ideas or sharing knowledge, but their percentages were relatively slower. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus, in Hong Kong, using weblogs by the students for learning is infancy. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Hypothesis 1 (7) <ul><li>Other evidence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>33 students (57.9%) told us that their teachers had their own weblogs for sharing and discussing among the teachers and students. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For these 33 students, there was only 1 student (4.2%) frequently visiting the teacher weblog. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Hypothesis 1 (8) <ul><li>Other evidence </li></ul><ul><li>Table E: Comment on teachers’ weblogs </li></ul><ul><li>It shows that few students found the teachers’ weblog helpful </li></ul>
  11. 11. Hypothesis 1 (9) <ul><li>Other evidence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It also provided the preliminary evidence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the school couldn’t create the supporting environment for the students that fostered using the weblog for learning. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fortunately, there were 34 students (59.6%) to be willing to use the weblog for learning in the future. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thus, in Hong Kong, using weblogs by the students for learning was proved to be infancy. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Hypothesis 2 (1) <ul><li>Definition of lurker </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lurker usually reads the weblogs, but do not give any comment on weblogs. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Hypothesis 2 (2) <ul><li>Table F: Give comments on the weblogs </li></ul><ul><li>It shows many students (69.6%) always give comments on the weblog </li></ul>
  14. 14. Hypothesis 2 (3) <ul><li>Table G: Response to comments on the weblogs </li></ul><ul><li>It also shows many students (73.9%) always response to comments given by the reader on the weblog </li></ul>
  15. 15. Hypothesis 2 (4) <ul><li>Conclusively, we observed that the students were relatively active on writing the comments or response to the comments </li></ul><ul><li>Hence, it was apparent that Hong Kong students were not the lurkers in the Internet </li></ul>
  16. 16. Hypothesis 3 (1) <ul><li>Learning required more sharing, discussing and reflection among the students and teachers </li></ul><ul><li>Weblogs usually provided the inherent facilities to meet such requirements. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Hypothesis 3 (2) <ul><li>Table H: Status of students while using weblog </li></ul><ul><li>It also shows there are 42 students (73.7%) to be going to both read and write weblogs </li></ul>Read Weblog
  18. 18. Hypothesis 3 (3) <ul><li>In our survey, we found that 23 students (79.3%) out of 29 students, which always read weblogs, wrote the comment, then the weblog owner gave the responses and the student replied on the responses. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Hypothesis 3 (4) <ul><li>Moreover, there were 23 students (71.9%) out of the 32 students, who always wrote comments, to be willing to keep track on the specific weblogs for further discussion. </li></ul><ul><li>This created the foundational atmosphere for the weblog owners and weblog readers to construct the learning. </li></ul>
