Making child-friendly surveys with Edubuzz Limesurvey

The Edubuzz Limesurvey system is currently being used for a colourful survey of meal preferences amongst some East Lothian primary schools.

Most of the surveys done to date have just used the default appearance, and text questions, but this example by Elaine Mitchell of Facilities Management Services shows how a survey can be made much more attractive with the addition of some colourful graphics.

Apart from brightening up surveys, images can also be added to questions themselves, and questions asked about them.

Curious about Google Apps? Try this intro course.

After successful testing, Google Apps ring logoEast Lothian’s Edubuzz.org Google Apps for Education system is now being made available to all schools. If you’ve not seen it yet, you might be curious about what’s on offer.

Google Apps complement Glow and the Edubuzz blogs by providing a new set of completely web-based tools for communication and collaboration, including Mail, Calendar, Sites and Documents.

If you’d like a guided intro, there’s a very simple self-paced course you might like to try. It’s not based on exactly our system (the Start Page, for example, has since gone) but is a good starting point.

There’s a CPD course already in the CPDShare calendar, and further training on how these tools might support teaching and learning activities, including drop-in sessions, is being offered on request.
