Promoting Global Citizenship through ICT: Ukrainian High School Students
Yukhymenko, Mariya A.; Brown, Scott W.
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n8 p50-61 Aug 2009
Information is one of the important assets in today's society. Information and communication technologies (ICT) may be particularly important for students as one of the tools shaping global citizens. The objective of this study was to investigate the use of ICT by high school students (n=122) from a developing country, like Ukraine. The "Global Citizenship Survey" was used and modified for the purpose of this study (Lima, 2006). Initial analyses indicated that the majority of the students use computers at school at least once per week. However, most of the students do not use the Internet at school on a weekly basis. At the same time, the majority of students from Ukraine have computers at home and more than half of students have the Internet access at home. A chi-square analysis revealed statistically significant gender differences in the use of computers and the Internet. A modified Global Citizenship Survey is appended. (Contains 6 tables.)
