The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has announced the opening of the third annual Vision K-20 Survey. Sponsored by the organization's Education Division, the Vision K-20 Survey gives educational institutions an opportunity to take a short, online survey to evaluate their current technology use. Participants who complete the survey by Feb. 24, 2010, will have a chance to be founding contributors to the soon-to-be launched SIIA Vision K-20 Video Portal.
Focusing on goals outlined in the Vision roadmap, including 21st Century tools, accessibility, differentiated learning, assessment tools, and enterprise support, institutions - schools, districts, colleges, and universities - will be able to use the Vision's benchmarks to monitor their progress, and can complete the survey periodically as they work toward the Vision for K-20 in education.
SIIA member organizations worked together to develop the Vision K-20 initiative to serve as a guide for educational institutions to implement technology district and campus-wide. This survey aims to collect additional data that will broadly assist educators in taking this important project to the next level of knowledge and success.
To learn more about this initiative and to participate in the 2010 Vision K-20 Survey, visit www.siia.net/VisionK20/. The survey will close May 15, 2010.
SIIA appreciates the support of its partners and their commitment to improving students' preparedness for an innovative and global economy. Among the many partners committed to supporting the Vision K-20 Survey are eSchool Media, Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Schools Interoperability Framework Association (SIFA), JDL Horizons, WeTheTeachers, WeAreTeachers, and edWeb.
