Science Teacher Preliminary Data Snapshot
This is a special release of the preliminary data findings from Speak Up 2015 (data collected from October 1 – December 4th from 1,689 Science Teachers nationwide). The final data results will be published in a series of national reports in spring 2015.
The Speak Up survey is open to anyone who is interested in sharing their thoughts about education. If you are not a student, educator, administrator or parent but would like to take the survey, please take our community members survey. Feel free to share the survey (http://bit.ly/SU15survey) with anyone who may be interested as well!
We are excited to announce that we have created new surveys for two specific education stakeholders groups this year:
NEW SURVEY for Science Teachers
Digital content, tools and resources are increasingly critical in the 21st century science classroom for several reasons including supporting the new curriculum standards in science. This new survey, created with support from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), will give us an opportunity to explore deeply how science teachers in particular are using technology to drive the development of student skills and interest in STEM fields – and what their needs are for professional development around digital learning.
NEW SURVEY for District Communications and Public Relations Officers
The job of the district communications professional is changing quickly. As many districts aim to improve their community outreach and parental engagement efforts, the communications officers are increasingly on the front line of using a wide variety of digital tools and resources to support their work. This new survey has been designed especially for these communications and PR officers with support from the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA). We are excited to learn more about technology use within the district communications offices.
Are you a science teacher or district communications and public relations officer? If so, be sure to take the Speak Up survey from October 1 – December 15, 2015. Help us spread the word to science teachers and district communications and public relations officers around the world – just share this blog post and stay tuned for more information about our two new surveys!
