Blocked v. Unblocked

On February 10, my colleague Cathy Swan (Technology Integration Teacher at New Canaan High School) and I, along with our director of technology Robert Miller, gave a talk to the 9th grade parent body about the value of using Facebook in school. Here is the low down. 

We first surveyed our students. I already blogged about that.

Then we surveyed the parents from our workshop. Most answers were aligned with our students', but there were a few glaring discrepancies.

Now, we are in the process of surveying students from other schools. As I mentioned earlier, I already blogged about this. Based on the first 170 responses, we found that students in UNBLOCKED schools spend
  • 12% MORE Facebook time on schoolwork
  • 8% LESS Facebook time sharing videos and pictures
  • 6% LESS Facebook time talking to friends about movies, books and music.
