📊 Learning Technologies Survey 

Many of you completed a Learning Technology Survey for your school or district last year. This survey provides insights into learning and teaching practices related to technology at your school or district. If you have not done one, welcome to a wonderful tool to gauge technical readiness with your teachers and staff. If you have already done one, consider doing another one to compare with your previous survey. We recommend doing this free, short 15-minute survey twice during the school year. After completing the survey, you will receive your results and we will set up a meeting to dive into the data. 

If your school or district would like to participate in the Learning Technologies Survey, please contact Peter Oyler or Brian Dorfner for setup, sample reporting, and more information.
