After last week, I decided to use SPSS as the student rate for a year is reasonable. Now I'm facing all the data and realize I need to do a few tutorials to figure this out. A couple of interesting things have shown up already - survey takers tend to rate their knowledge highly on basic skills for using the computer, with a mean of around 4.7/5 (between good and very good knowledge ) for searching the Internet, using computers and office software, and creating slide shows, with lowest being a 3 (medium knowledge). However, for online units and multimedia presentations, those means drop closer to 4.1/5, with the lowest being a 1 (No Knowledge). And my happy little semantic differential question is consistent for the group, with over 60% of the respondents marking 6 or 7 (maximum value) on the fresh, exciting, likable, happy side of their perception of BYOD. I need to look how individuals responded, but without getting in too much analysis, it looks like most of my survey respondents were confident in their tech skills and liked BYOD, which will be helpful for what works, but may not shed insight on whether teachers with lower confidence in their tech skills tend to dislike BYOD more.
I haven't done an Interview in over a week - I'm going to shake the bushes, but analysis takes precedence as I have enough to analyze. I want to do interviews for confirmation and to pick up more nuances, but I'll fit those in when possible. I just sent reminder to those I had not heard from, and I also have a few new people to ask.
And I'm coding the interviews. I'm becoming more comfortable with my codes as I merge and rename them but I can see I will have to do another round of code consolidation. I keep looking at them and thinking, "What do these codes mean?"
