The national Speak Up Survey 2013 is now underway. The Speak Up Survey provides participating schools and school districts online surveys and reports to collect authentic feedback from students, educators and parents regarding how technology is used for education. The survey results are available to schools online, free of charge at the end of the survey period. In addition, results will be summarized and shared with education and policy leaders in Washington DC and state capitols.
The EVSC is again participating in this voluntary survey. Students, teachers and parents are being asked to participate if they would like – in order to help gather this information to be compiled with national statistics; as well as broken down by corporation and individual school level.
As a part of the survey about technology, students will also be given the chance this year, to “brief the President” on their ideas for improving education and to describe how they would make one of their classes more interesting and valuable if technology was better used in that class.
A link to the survey will also be posted on the EVSC website, for parents to access – and individual schools may also post it on their sites.
The Speak Up online survey will be completed by more than 400,000 K-12 students, educators and parents around the country. The results provide important insights about education, technology and student aspirations that are used every year by individual schools, districts, state departments of education and national leaders.
