Our world is increasingly influenced by the technology available to us. From entertainment to commerce, from communications to civic participation, it seems that our lives online as a separate entity from the rest of our "real world" existence is becoming a redundant concept.

This is as true of how learning takes place as it is of how we choose to buy groceries, however at times we see signs of a difficult duality that exists in our communities between a desire for young people to be able to embrace all the advantages that technology brings to their learning, and the concern that technology is in some way damaging our young people's development.

Schools too have "opinions" on these issues, and while they may not implicitly make statements which convey them, they are often expressed in statements of school values, in their approach to ICT adoption in the classroom, their investment in equipment and infrastructure and their approach to the community in regards to changes in ICT related strategy or policy.

What is the effect when the schools approach is at odds with their community? How does it impact the schools ability to support learning when the community feels that their use of technology is moving too fast, or not fast enough? How successful is an initiative designed to engage parents with young people's learning using technology, if the community feels that technology should have no place in the learning process?

While these may be extreme examples, they sit at the edges of a continuum that most schools and communities find themselves on with regards to the rapidly evolving world of technology in education, and the first step to working out where about a school and community sit on that continuum, is to make sure both parties understand each others position.

This Community Digital Citizenship survey has been designed to help schools understand how their wider community feels about issues ranging from connectivity to online safety knowledge, from the role of technology in society to understanding of schools ICT strategy. The data will provide schools with some insight into the current position of their community, as well as providing a benchmark data for consideration when rolling out a new ICT related initiative.
