69% of my students did not access email or Google Classroom over 7 days

Many students have hundreds if not thousands of unread emails.

Students are expected to access learning resources and keep up to date via Google Classroom, and/or email.

I ran an experiment involving requesting students complete a survey about their use of Google Classroom and email… the click bait being that I would include their response (or rather non-response) in reports to parents about their self-management capability.

The response was around 30% over 7 days meaning that 70% of my students (a biased sample given they all do Digital technologies) did not even read the Google Classroom request and/or associated email. This is a problem insofar as:

  1. Students are not taking responsibility for their own learning (especially when away),
  2. Students are exhibiting poor self-management, and
  3. Students are missing out, given most resources are digitally delivered (as now expected in a BYOD school)
  4. Students do not have the skills to manage and access resources…

Lots to think about in the brave new world of digital learning…
