What kind of tech user are you?

The Pew Research Center says it's a "fact tank", dedicated to research on issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. One of its projects, the Pew Internet & American Life Project, explores the impact of the internet on children, families, communities, the work place, schools, health care and civic/political life. They've developed a user typology and statistics based on the results of a quiz. If you're interested in thinking about how you use the internet, and if you want to ask your students about their habits and needs in order to assess your digital communication style, this quiz is a good place to start.

My feedback said: "For you, the digital commons can be a camp, a lab, or a theater group – places to gather with others to develop something new." That might be true. But what if my students don't use the internet that way? - Do the test and let us know what you find out about yourself and your students.
