Survey of NZ school children – preliminary results

The Dominon Post reported on the first findings from this survey on Saturday. (Interesting that they are releasing results before the survey is even finished? Maybe its to get more publicity about it?)

The survey is:

Organised by Auckland University, the Education Ministry and Statistics New Zealand, the project aims to raise pupils’ interest in maths and statistics and provide a sketch of what they are thinking, feeling and doing.

Great! Any library questions in there I wonder? (If there aren’t can we get any added :-))

Interesting things so far:

* 88 per cent of children use a social network website

* 85 per cent of boys have a game console at home.

* 77 per cent of girls own an mp3 music player.

* 50 per cent of children download or listen to music online.
