ankieta eTwinning PL plus summary of the survey

Summary of results:

Survey was conducted from 16th June to 24th July 2015. The questionaire was avaliable online on a kindergarten website and a project blog in a Polish version. Eleven parents took a part in a survey.

Question 1. Parents were asked about the way of being informed about project process, its aims and results.
Parents answers suggest various sources of information about the project. They were informed directly by teachers, through kindergarten web site and project blog, and also by displays on a group board.
Question 2. Parents appraised the frequency of their visits on the project blog.
Half of parents declared visiting project blog few times a month. One parent was visiting the blog few times a week, another one – once a month. One parent admitted not visiting project blog at all. Being asked about the reason of rare visits on the blog, parents explain the lack of time and other, unspecified reasons.
Question 3. Parents tried to appraise child`s motivation within project activities.
Most of parents noticed rising motivation during the project or keeping the same quality of motivation towards project tasks. One parent stated that his/her child`s motivation was waning, another one has no opinion about this matter.
Question 4. Parents were asked about project impact on gaining students competences. Parents stated how much they agree with statements by rating them with phrases: I strongly agree; I rather agree; I have no opinion; I don’t agree, I definitely don’t agree.
Parents answers indicate that there is a strong correlation between project work and developing cultural competences, growth of children`s knowledge, curiosity and creativity, and progress of their individual facilities. Parents perceive project`s impact on gaining language competences and skills in using new technologies. Achieving curriculum goals through project activities is also apparent. Rarely parents said that they have no opinion about these issues. With no doubt parents see eTwinning projects as inspiring educational offer for their children.
Question 5. Parents were asked to rate attractiveness of project activities. They used a scale based on such statements as: very attractive (for children), average, little attractive, unattractive.
Most of project activities were rated by parents unanimously as „very attractive for children”. Among them there were: tracks and puzzles about animals in our countries, creating Gruffalo and rebuiding our European Gruffalo, creating magic land for Gruffalo (La La Land), creating and playing Gruffalo board game, collaborative story with silly items from our partners and playing in Gruffalo theatre for parents and grandparents. Another activities were rated as “very atractive” or “average” and there were: memory game to introduce themselves, drawing contest and voting for the best characters of the story, showing outdoor to our friends and making Gruffalo`s menu. For one parent both memory game and showing outdoor to our friends were little attractive.
Question 6.Additional parents` comments.
Additional comments gave by some parents indicate positive reaction towards “Read the World” project. What is more, they highlighted teachers commitment for creating project activities. Some of parents` comments:
• I have never seen „something like that”. I am very surprised with this project and very grateful. We had a great joy and satisfaction watching our child`s involvement in a project.
• I am very glad with this project. Thank you!
• It need to be highlighted that teachers were equal to the occasion and did this project work with great passion! Teachers, Anna and Natalia deserved to receive thanksgiving for what they did – for project adventures and interesting way to gain a knowledge about Europe. Dear Ladies – we (parents) see that and appreciate that. Thank you!
• We hope that next year another children will have a chance to take a part in such projects!
