In our school there is only one form with students this age with less than 10 pupils. They did not use an Ipad before at school. The survey was the first time they did.

The majority of them knows tablets and the Internet and think they have sufficent skills.


100 % likes to use tablets at school and have access to internet. Mostly all of the says that they are very skilled or skilled in use of tablets. Many use tablets often at home. They are saying that learning outcome is high in using tablets. 2 out of 3 says that they are alone using the tablet. Mostly all pupils know the rules at school for using tablets and have rules at home.


Note: Only 7 year old children responded to this survey at our school.

  • Obviously, children from 2 to 7 years consider themselves good or even very good in the use of the tablet. We conclude that they know how to play with the tablet.
  • Only one child among all those questioned do not like to use the tablet at school.
  • Approximately 66% of children report using it alone.
  • A large majority say they do not know the rules of use of the iPad at school, which makes sense if they do not use it often.
  • Approximately 66% of children of this age mainly use game consoles, computers and tablets.
  • 33% of 7 year old children have no rules for using the tablet at home.
  • Almost 66% think they learn a lot using the iPad.
