Platforms survey

Let's look at our own use of media and how that compares to other generations with a Media Survey activity.

1 - The questionnaire

Download the media questionnaire. Pupils should fill in one copy of the questionnaire each and get an adult to fill out the other one. Ideally your class should collect more data, get siblings or friends to fill out one and an older relative or neighbour to fill out a fourth. There should be a balance of adults and kids completed questionnaires.

2 - Plot your results

Use the accompanying pdf charts to plot your results.

Media survey discussion

Discuss the results in class. Does age affect the results? Are younger people more likely to use the internet to find music and videos? Are older people more likely to got to a shop and buy a song or film than look online?
