Jun 27, 2012 8:49 AM 25 Whether it serves the purpose, to guide students in their learning. A lot of the Jun 26, 2012 9:36 PM assessment is from students opinions. I also find that it needs to be relatively easy to integrate into my lesson, and at the moment I am not completely changing the way I teach to incorporate technology - for instance, I am not "flipping" classrooms. 26 If the students use it (do the activity proposed) Jun 26, 2012 3:45 PM 27 If it provides a more effective way of achieving the lesson aims than not Jun 26, 2012 9:17 AM using the tool. So, does it help the learners do something quicker and better? 28 Twitter, blog, LinkedIn, and/or other professional networked PLN Jun 24, 2012 11:44 PM connections comments... *I usually explore and if my first impressions are strong, will google to see if Nik Peachey or Webheads or other names I know/respect have written about it, provided tutorials, examples.

Therefore, I cannot really speak from my experience of using a particular ICT/Web Tool. However, I would say if the students are engaged in the activity using ICT I would consider it as being successful. 31 by the motivation and response of ss Jun 24, 2012 8:37 PM 32 Pedagogical and useful related to language skills.

Does it do something we cant Jun 24, 2012 11:20 AM do without it? Does it promote language learning? Is it flexible--i.e. can students change/adapt it, and does it offer students more roles than just passive consumer? 37 By how well it met my expecations as shown in question 12 Jun 24, 2012 8:28 AM 38 easy to get access to /navigate/use, free/cheap, useful Jun 23, 2012 4:00 PM 39 If students enjoy it, and have demonstrated use of target language Jun 23, 2012 3:43 PM 40 The amount of use it gets outside the classroom Jun 23, 2012 2:34 PM 41 I try to use it in my teaching and depending on student-response I would Jun 23, 2012 1:32 PM decide if its an effective tool for me.

  29. 29. Page 3, Q13. How do you or would you assess the success or effectiveness of a particular ICT/Web Tool?(optional) 42 It depends on my professional practice.I feel pleasure as well as motivated to Jun 23, 2012 1:32 PM kiss the ICT world. 43 If I cannot imagine my life without that means it has to be good :-) Jun 23, 2012 12:19 PM 44 If students learn from using it and/or enjoy using it, then I could say that the Jun 23, 2012 8:57 AM tool is useful for me and my learners. 45 Ease of use, student feedback and results. Jun 23, 2012 8:20 AM 46 I would say that such tools as Pixton, Wordle, YouTube, Jing, Wallwisher Jun 22, 2012 10:04 PM proved really effective in my one-to-one and group classes. They motivate students and make learning fun. And while having fun, students are still learning "serious" stuff. Besides, they see that their teacher keeps up with the modern world. 47 Student reaction is the main thing for me. If they have a positive reaction to Jun 22, 2012 6:48 PM it, then engagement and motivation are easier to achieve and the learning goals are more easily reached. I also look for all students to be involved - some lessons with video and voice-recording have really encouraged my shy students to open up, something that would have been more difficult without tech tools.

Jun 24, 2012 7:54 PM 8 I dont consider myself a very autonomous learner when it comes to ICT, Jun 24, 2012 11:33 AM although Im gradually getting better because I think learner autonomy is important and interesting and ideally would like to foster it in my own classrooms. 9 Blog posts written by other teachers about how they have used the tool in Jun 22, 2012 6:51 PM class (practical examples) are also useful APPENDIX B 35 of 43

At least, not all the time! 8 *not enough andragogical value :) Jun 24, 2012 11:48 PM 9 My organisations corporate network doesnt allow me to use unapproved Jun 24, 2012 1:03 PM software on its system. 10 Physical discomfort associated with using the computer: too many hours Jun 24, 2012 11:33 AM hunched over my tiny netbook. Seriously! I think the ergonomic issues are the elephant in the living room. Yes there are remedies for these but I cant afford (or dont prioritize the expense) of getting the equipment necessary to make it ergonomically more sustainable to spend more time on the computer. Not to mention eyestrain. But actually I think it is important to turn off the computer every day and go outside, get exercise, focus on other things. I think another elephant in the living room with ICT is the problem of deteriorating quality of concentration that many of us have been experiencing as we become more adept and frequent ICT users in every aspect of our lives. Maybe this is just a stage that we pass through and learn to remedy--I hope! 11 Those Ive ticked above are reasons why I might not learn or implement a Jun 24, 2012 8:35 AM particular tool.

Thanks for it. I look forward to seeing the results of it. Jul 6, 2012 4:29 AM Good luck in your Masters. 3 the context in the developeing world is signficantly different. Jul 5, 2012 3:43 PM 4 It would have been interesting to see a question about OS platforms and Jul 1, 2012 7:11 AM how Universities like mine set up CALL systems without consulting teachers who actually use the equipment. 5 In most of the third world countries, there are still some problems on the Jun 28, 2012 8:17 AM development of ICT in language teaching and learning. There is the question of power which is partly available and technology accessibility to people and schools in up country areas. 6 No Jun 27, 2012 4:23 PM 7 n/a Jun 27, 2012 12:14 PM 8 Questions not always clear when to use N/A, Jun 27, 2012 9:46 AM 9 Some ofthe questions were difficult to understand and some were repetitive, Jun 27, 2012 9:33 AM however, I encourage you to do the dissertation that I consider interesting. 10 Question 16 is difficult to answer accurately because of the way the Jun 26, 2012 9:22 AM statements are phrased in relation to the options available. 11 Interesting survey, when I read the tools available I was surprised how little I Jun 26, 2012 8:49 AM actually know.. I had considered myself quite knowledgeable about use of technology for teaching ! 12 For 10 years I worked with an Adult Learning Center where prof. dev. was Jun 24, 2012 11:51 PM supported = if you presented, your way was paid (most years). I have helped coordinate regional and state conferences (Virginia), attended and presented at TESOL annual conferences, several other state conferences, and many other opportunities. It was much easier when there was institutional support. It is not impossible now, but more limited. 13 nope Jun 24, 2012 10:00 PM 14 No, none. Jun 24, 2012 7:54 PM 15 Sometimes its not wether youre a technophobe or the opposite, but the fact Jun 24, 2012 7:24 PM that theres more to it. For instance, badly equipped classrooms, or time constrictions. The students play a mayor role too. In my country theres also the need for more teacher development programs that help us to integrate our subject matter with tecnology and not merely use it to do the same old things in new ways just because its there. 16 Yes, the disregard of self-employed teachers engagement in ITC on their Jun 24, 2012 4:46 PM own is rather disheartening, very exclusive, although its clear that the last questions were about support. Still some variants for self- employed/freelance teachers could be added to listen to all opinions, not only to the opinions of those who work in institutions... 17 I was a bit confused on the final page where I was asked to talk about Jun 24, 2012 3:34 PM "always" or "never" for what seemed to be questions of opinion (rather than APPENDIX B 39 of 43
  34. 34. Page 5, Q19. Do you have any other comments about this survey that you would like to include? (optional) frequency). In any case, it was an enjoyable and interesting survey. 18 Please see a post I wrote recently responding to Scott Thornburys post Jun 24, 2012 11:35 AM entitled T is for Technology. My blog is passthediploma.edublogs.org 19 Would love to see waht my colleagues think - some are complete Jun 24, 2012 8:36 AM tehnophobes - will forward to them. 20 There are a lot of things I would like to try with students, but with one Jun 23, 2012 3:50 PM computer per classroom, and an offsite computer lab, it just seems such a hassle to coordinate everything. It seems we are in a bind because the institutions want teachers to integrate ICT, but cannot provide the machinery or training to make it happen. Frustrating! 21 Basically the survey that you are carrying out is really challenging. One thing Jun 23, 2012 1:49 PM that you have to analyze the data collected very carefully otherwise you have to face some problems I am sure your dissertation will be very effective.Best of Luck 22 I think that at least in our country everything depends on a teacher, on their Jun 22, 2012 10:11 PM enthusiasm to use ICT. I have always been the one who initiated using new technologies in class, and held trainings for other teachers. But I mostly have one-to-one classes, so I am free to choose whichever technology I like. And my students are happy with that. 23 Technology, like many other issues in ELT, seems to divide opinion and be Jun 22, 2012 6:54 PM misused. In my current situation, many teachers either see it as pointless or use it without considering learning aims and/or suitability. Training is simply not frequent enough and the school seems unwilling to invest in both the necessary training and in upgrading/maintaining equipment. Im trying to change things but its a slow process! APPENDIX B 40 of 43
