Top 5 Reasons Why Your Schools Should Participate in Speak Up

1. Gain a better understanding of what your school’s technology needs are and make more informed funding decisions.
2. Learn about the aspirations for your teachers for using technology more effectively – and what is holding them back.
3. Find ways to improve school-to-home communications using new technology tools.
4. Ensure that your students and parents have a voice in national, state and local decisions about education.
5. It’s free!

The Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning is both a national research project and a free service to schools and districts everywhere. Since fall 2003, Speak Up has helped education leaders include the voices of their stakeholders in annual and long-term planning. More than 5 million students, educators, parents and community members have shared their input on education, technology, schools of the future, science and math instruction, professional development, career exploration and more.

Registered schools/districts receive all of their data – for free – in February, plus national data for comparison.

Speak Up 2017 will be open for input through January 19, 2018.
Participate at any time during that window.

Surveys take 15-20 minutes to complete. All information is 100% confidential. No identifying information is collected. All local data is ONLY shared with the registered primary contact. Speak Up is facilitated by Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization.
