I am working in some big stuff regarding educational sciences. I am tired of educators and of society in general narrow-mindedly degrading the value of creative hobbies, internet, videogames, etc., in people's education.

If you have 5-10 minutes to help education, please fill 2 short polls I created for my paper. I need as many results as possible before November 10th to show a preliminary view to the "big fishes" in my university.

You can get the polls in English or Spanish from the following links, and send your results to pollitaresults@gmail.com

 

***New information and communication techs and animation poll

[.doc version –English-]

[.pdf version –English-]

[.doc version –Spanish-]

[.pdf version –Spanish-]

 

***Videogames and education poll

[.doc version –English-]

[.pdf version –English-]

[.doc version –Spanish-]

[.pdf version –Spanish-]

 

Please do let me know if there is something wrong with the links or with something else.


Thanks for your collaboration!!!

about video games via real life. also, did you know? video games were actually made by the air force so their pilots could fly better, with better attention spans, and have their eyes better adjusted to see targets that pop out at you.

also, this reveals that the video game players are NOT ONLY better drivers, but they are better communicators as well, also online video games are becoming the new "dating sites", in which some of my friends have actually gotten married and known their counterpart over WOW or playing halo (online of course) and this is an article referencing that

If America likes anything, it's the sports. When I got in high school, we had the funding to have a billion clubs, and we had a nice mix of sports and art clubs. When the funding went dry, all the art clubs got dropped. In fact, rumor in my school has it that when some rich guy gave our school money to fund the music wing of our school, they instead used it to redo the entire football field.

You know what sucks? My school got rid of the 'special' education (which my brother was in), made school lunches out of cheap 'healthy' food, and even got rid of Modified Sports. They even got rid of FIELD TRIPS, plus are cutting back teachers.

But, I am lucky they didn't get rid of the 'student exchange program', sports, extra classes (like tech and art), and a lot of other things.

Mmm, I see this everywhere. I go to a school out in the country, so I'm not surprised at how little even the students care about nothing but sports. It makes it hard for me as both a 2D animator and a game maker to really get any support when all anybody cares about is a track meet. ξ( >_> )

My former high school is cutting all foreign languages except for Spanish. We used to have French, German, Latin, and Japanese but not any more. The Band, Choir, Orchestra, and Theater departments are next.

My school just cut all the art programs and some of the history classes here at my school, just so they can get more office members that literally do nothing but sit there while they have seniors to the work.

And here in a few years, our Choir and Band teachers are retiring, and then they're getting rid of that as well.

I sent in the filled out poll but I'm not sure if it sent correctly. I'll note you the email I used.
