I really like surveys. So I created a google form and asked the following questions.: What electronic device do you want for Christmas, be realistic or dream a little either way is correct?; What device do you want to give your family for Christmas?; What device do you want to give your friends for Christmas?; and finally, What device do you want to give your teachers for Christmas?. I am so proud of the students at PFTSTA; by reading their responses, you can tell that they put a lot of thought into it. Even though they were asked for a one or two word answer many of the students made some interesting comments.
One student wanted, "a device for his family where we would always be connected."
Another student would "give my friends headphones, gift cards that they could use ON their electronic device. I suppose it just depends."
One sixth grader remarked, "I think the teachers need APPLE LAPTOPS! Down with the Dell! Haha!"
A ninth grade girl says that she wants this for her friends, "Canon cameras because that has been at the top of everyones wishlist this year.
I love this idea for the teachers from a senior, "An e-reader with a complimentary book, The Case Against Homework."
I used my new favorite word cloud creator, tagul, to collate the responses.
