In conjunction with Digital Learning Day, SIIA announces the opening of its sixth annual Vision K-20 Survey and newly revamped Vision K-20 website. Sponsored by the Education Division of SIIA, the Vision K-20 Survey gives educators, administrators, and faculty members from K-12 and postsecondary educational institutions the opportunity to evaluate their current technology and compare it to prior results in a short online survey. SIIA member organizations worked together to develop the Vision K-20 initiative as a guide for educational institutions to implement technology district-wide and campus-wide.
The release of the new Vision K-20 website provides new resources and materials for educators and industry professionals. Visit the new site to see studies that support vision goals and provide valuable education technology information. Educators can use the resources section to help their institutions achieve Vision K-20 goals.
Initial aggregated results will be released at the 2013 Ed Tech Industry Summit (ETIS) in May, with a final report released at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) annual conference in June.
SIIA values the support of its partners and their commitment to improving students’ preparedness for an innovative and global economy. Partners committed to supporting the Vision K-20 initiative and survey include: Digital Learning Day, the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), iPopp, Intel Worldwide Education, SmartBrief, International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), edWeb.net, and eSchool Media. The project’s lead partner was MMS Education. MMS Education provides market research, marketing, sales, and technology solutions for a wide range of education technology companies.
