Parents, students and staff are asked to participate in the Speak Up 2015 Online Survey October 1 – December 18, 2015 and share your ideas about how to leverage technology in schools to promote better learning.
The national Speak Up survey asks students about how they use – and how they would like to use – technology for learning. This year marks the fourth year the Howard-Suamico School District is participating in the survey. Students will be asked about their use of mobile tools, social networks and gaming as part of their learning in and out of the classroom. Teachers and administrators will be asked what tools they use and what they want to use and how prepared they are for technology use. Parents will be asked how they feel about the role of technology in their children’s lives and learning.
Students will also be given the chance this year, through two open‐ended questions, 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.
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.
The 2015 online survey – open to all K‐12 students, parents, teachers, librarians and administrators at http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2015 – offers the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered input on education and technology from those ‘on the ground’ in the schools. The annual survey about education and technology is facilitated through public, private, parochial and charter schools all around the country; every school is eligible to participate.
