End of Year survey part 3

My third question for the kids was:  What did you want to learn in IT this year that you didn’t? or What do you wish you’d learned in IT this year?  I wrote it in two questions to try to make it easier for the kids to understand, yep that was a mistake, it made it more difficult.  I should remember simplicity is usually better.  The interesting thing about these answers is they are so individualized and I really like that but it makes planning a bit more difficult lol.  Maybe I need to include an independent project unit so that students can learn what they want to learn.  Hmmm definitely worth keeping in mind.
