Looking to Evaluate Your School’s Technology Use?

By April 16, 2012 No Comments

For the 5th year, the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) provides educators, administrators and faculty members from K-12 and post-secondary educational institutions the opportunity to evaluate their technology use by taking a short, online survey. Participants can draw on the 20 benchmarks in the SIIA Vision K-20 survey to assess their current technology setup, and establish future goals with the survey’s “ideal implementation” component.

Schools, districts, two-year colleges and four-year universities will be able to use the Vision K-20 benchmarks to monitor their progress, and can update the survey periodically as they work toward their goals. The Vision K-20 benchmarks focus on 21st Century tools, accessibility, differentiated learning, assessment tools and enterprise support.

SIIA member organizations worked together to develop the Vision K-20 initiative as a guide to help educational institutions implement technology district- and campus-wide. This survey aims to collect additional data that will broadly assist educators in taking technology implementation to the next level of success.

The 2012 survey closed May 24, 2012. To download the results of the most recent Vision K-20 Survey, please visit: www.siia.net/visionk20/survey.asp.
