Now we have the results of the need analysis survey showing that all respondents’ use social media in their free time and 7 out of 10 use them for professional development and sharing educational content with colleagues online.
According to our respondents, it’s not lack of skills that keeps them from using web tools and social media but the lack of time because half of the respondents feel that they would use the Internet more for professional purposes if they had more time.
Of the learning platforms presented in the survey, Moodle and Facebook were the two activities of which respondents feel that they are experienced users. Even though Twitter, LinkedIn, Yammer and other tools are widely used in general, it seems that the adult educators responding to our survey have little experience in using them.
Many, many thanks to all our respondents – your answers are valuable for further development of the badge.
