GDOE: ‘Speak Up’ survey seeks views on technology and learning

63

The Guam Department of Education (GDOE) is participating in Speak Up 2019-2020 from now until January 31, 2020.

Speak Up, a national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, provides an easy way for students, parents, educators, and the community to share their views on technology and learning.

Public input informs district decisions about technology and contributes to the national dialogue about educational technology. The information collected helps Project Tomorrow to share the viewpoints of more than 5.4 million students, educators and parents. All responses are confidential and no identifying information is collected about any participant.

The Speak Up survey will help the GDOE answer important questions including:

  • How are students using technology for learning in and out of school?
  • How important is the use of technology to our teachers and parents?
  • What types of technology would our teachers like to use and how would they use it in the classroom?
  • Do our ideas about technology align with our students’ parents?

As a nonprofit educational organization, Project Tomorrow provides Speak Up as a free tool for all schools to use – allowing GDOE to conduct this research while also keeping resources focused in the classrooms. GDOE receives results with state and national comparisons, providing valuable data that can be used for strategic planning, professional development and budgeting throughout the school year.
