Study on Hands on Learning Seeks Data from Educators

The Foundation for Technology and Engineering Education (FTEE) - Dugger/Gerrish Endowment, in partnership with the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) has commissioned a study to determine to what extent students in United States public schools practice "doing" in their elementary, middle, and high school courses. For the purposes of this study, the definition of "doing" is:

A tactile/hands-on process of problem solving starting with human needs and wants that leads to the principles of innovation such as designing, making/building, producing, and evaluating.

We ask that you respond to 3 demographic questions and answer Yes or No to 13 statements dealing with "Doing Based Learning." The survey will not take longer than 5 minutes to complete. The statements are based on the Next Generation Science Standards, Standards for Technological Literacy, and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Your input will not affect what you are currently teaching. There are no correct or incorrect responses. We are trying to determine what types of activities your students do in class. A space is provided for you to make comments, if you choose to do so.

This survey is totally voluntary. Your answers will be anonymous and can't be tracked back to you. Please complete this survey before April 15, 2014 to be eligible for an iPad Mini drawing that will be held no later than April 30, 2014. If you would like to participate in the drawing, follow the prompt at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your assistance. If you have any questions or concerns, please address them  to
