The tool is user friendly, and would provide teachers and program administrators with good information to assess student attitudes about technology. One concern I have is that the author defines what technology is, and in my opinion the definition is pretty narrow. It would be a much richer tool if the author allowed students to define technology themselves, therefore allowing a better understanding of who young people define and view technology.
