We are partnering with BrightBytes, an educational research and analytics company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use for learning.
Your participation is essential to help us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in our students’ lives, and will help me assess the technology needed for their learning. For those of you who have heard me speak on the topic, our goals with technology use in school are to build up student responsibility, to allow students to engage and explore within the curriculum, and to guide our students towards creation over consumption. We are a unique district and have very talented students. Our technology story is not about increased graduation rates or attendance; it is about offering students a strong instructional program that prepares them for college and career. It's also about dealing with the difficulties that come with technology, together. You have a support system as we all learn about the balance needed when using technology in our current world. There are definite challenges that we face, but I believe in the advantages and will continue to provide a place for our students to achieve their goals.
Below is the link for the Brightbytes survey. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy. The questionnaire will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
The last day to complete this questionnaire is Wednesday, January 25th. If you have more than one student, you only need to take the survey once (unless your experience with each student is vastly different, you make take it more than once). Please respond using the link below:
