Check your mobile phone in case someone texted you overnight. Have a shower or eat breakfast. Update my facebook status, check into a social network or check my email. For how many hours a day are you online? 0-2 3-5 6 or more Have you ever been in trouble at school for using a gadget in class? I am always being told off by the teacher for this! Never. A few times. How often do you speak to people face-to-face? Most of my communication is with people in real life (face-to face). I text, call or chat online with friends a bit more than I speak to people in real life. I really only communicate via the internet or mobile phone. I only speak to people if I absolutely have to. If you had to live for three days without an internet connection, how would you cope? It would be totally impossible! I would be very upset or angry. Three days is a long time - it would be hard. I would survive but I would be a bit unhappy. It might be nice to have a break from the online world for a few days. What would you prefer doing: Being online, checking messages, watching videos, chatting online, etc. Talking to a friend on my mobile while watching tv. Going for a nice walk with a good friend. How does being online make you feel? What do you think about the online world? I love being online - it's my favourite place in the world! It's okay and can be interesting sometimes, but I usually rather do things in the real world. It makes me feel connected to people and it's entertaining. Do you shop online? Not all that much - I have bought things online because they're cheap, but I usually like to see things in real life before I buy them. Always. I hate going to the shops. Often. It's fun shopping online, and you can get some real bargains. Have you ever missed a deadline for school work because you were on your computer (or other gadget)? No - my school work comes first. When I finish my homework, I allow myself to go online or call a friend. Yes, all the time. I have even failed some tasks and tests because of my internet use. Sometimes I've not been able to hand in work because I have spent too much time online.
