Klein ISD students invited to participate in Speak Up 2012 survey
Klein Independent School District's Speak Up 2012 survey will be open through Friday, Dec. 14.
The survey, hosted by Project Tomorrow, is designed to ask students, teachers, administrators and parents how they want to use technology in education, including communication and collaboration, according to a press release from the district.
The 2011 survey compiled the opinions of more than 24,400 students from the school district. Klein Oak High School had the most participants across the nation, followed by Wunderlich Intermediate and Doerre Intermediate.
Klein ISD was named of five districts to have effectively incorporated Speak Up survey data into its decision-making processes by Project Tomorrow.
The survey this year will ask students about the inclusion of mobile tools, social networks and gaming in the learning process, both in and out of the classroom. Teachers and administrators will be asked what resources they use or want to use in the classroom, as well as how prepared they are for technology use. Parents will be asked how they feel about the role of technology in the education of their children.
"This survey is a national effort to collect pertinent data and ideas on how technology can improve education," said Jim Cain, Klein ISD superintendent, in the press release. "Speak Up 2012 is a great opportunity for all to have their voices heard and to impact policies that target the use of technology for teaching and learning."
