Speak Up 2014

Speak Up 2014 – Make Your Voice Heard

Posted by cemignano on

Are you “Speaking Up” about digital learning this year? If not, you are missing a unique opportunity to have your views—as well as the views of your educators, students, their parents and the local community—included in the increasingly important U.S. national and state discussions on digital learning policies, programs, and funding.

As part of BrainPOP’s sponsorship of the Speak Up 2014 survey, we recently partnered with Project Tomorrow on an exciting new report, Digital Teachers, Digital Principals: Transforming the Ways We Engage Students. The data included in the report was built upon the data from last year’s Speak Up survey combined with interviews with a classroom teacher and principal on their use of digital content and games.

Therefore, we encourage the participation of all schools in the Project Tomorrow online research project Speak Up 2014. The Speak Up National Research Project annually collects and reports on the authentic, unfiltered views of K–12 students, parents, and educators about critical digital age education and technology issues. The survey questions reflect many pertinent education topics impacting the K-12 community today—such as the use of tablets within learning, digital games, online classes, social media and Internet safety. Since 2003, more than 3.4 million K–12 education stakeholders have shared their ideas about ed tech through the Speak Up 2014 online surveys. And we need your ideas too.

To “Speak Up,” simply visit www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2014 to take the survey.  Register as the primary contact of your school or district to manage your information and assign an administrative password to gain free access your local data in early February 2015. Contact the Speak Up team at speakup@tomorrow.org  today to get involved!
