Ma, Kai, Kuram ve Uygulamada Egitim Bilimleri


As the information technology keeps progressing, Internet technology has been widely used in various fields of society, and the freedom, openness and individualization of Internet has been increasingly imposing influence on the ideological and political education of college students (Hsiao, Lee, Huang, Chen & Chen, 2006). While Internet technology brings great opportunities to college students' ideological and political education, it also brings many problems and challenges. Therefore, under the background of the continuous development of Internet technology, the improvement and innovation of college students' ideological and political education have become a widespread concern in the society (Cain, Scott & Akers, 2009). How to effectively innovate traditional ideological and political education with advanced technology and means to adopt to the new era is one of the important issues that need to be solved urgently in the current ideological and political education of college students.

At present, many domestic and foreign experts and scholars in the education field have conducted a lot of researches on the innovation of traditional ideological and political education, but they all focus on the "Ideological and Political Education + Internet" based on network carriers (Wallman et al, 2012), with few innovative studies on ideological and political education for college students based on Internet technology. This paper analyzed the opportunities and challenges brought by Internet technology to college students' ideological and political education through questionnaires, and proposed innovative methods. Therefore, this research has broad prospects with high practical significance and value.

Survey and Analysis of College Students' Ideological and Political Education

Distribution of Questionnaires

In order to fully understand the status quo of college students' ideological and political education based on Internet technology, a questionnaire was designed in this research to survey college students nationwide, and the "online + line" model was adopted to ensure the wide coverage of the sample.

A total of 1364 questionnaires were collected, of which 1360 were valid and 4 were invalid. The basic information of the respondents is shown in Table 1 and Figure 1.

During the questionnaire collection, the online questionnaire submission rate was found to be 100%, which indicates that the practical coverage of mobile phone, computer and other network technologies among college students is very high.

Internet technology brings opportunities for college students' ideological and political education

Through the feedback of questionnaires from college students, it can be found that Internet technology provides a new educational concept and learning platform for college students' ideological and political education, which promotes the improvement of college students' ability, and college students hope to communicate through the Internet.

College students prefer communication through the Internet. With the network, computer, mobile phone, etc., college students can learn about major events at home and abroad without leaving home, communicate with the outside world, and express their opinions. In the survey, it was found that most of the students have heard or understood Internet technology (see Figure 2). Regarding the necessity of adding the Internet technology into the ideological and political education, 52.75% of the students was supportive while only 1.79% indicated no need or whatever attitude (see Figure 3 for details). This fully demonstrates that college students are highly expecting the introduction of Internet technology in ideological and political education.

When asked about the form of ideological and political teaching in their hope, more students prefer Internet technology and even virtual classrooms, because the online platform enables instant communication with teachers at any time and eases the tension in face-to-face class. …
