Speak Up 2014 launches next Monday, October 6!

Join the conversation about the use of technology for learning through Speak Up, a National Research Project.

The Speak Up National Research project annually polls K-12 students, parents and educators about the role of technology for learning in and out of school and represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder voice on digital learning. Since 2003, over 3.4 million K-12 students, parents, teachers, librarians, principals, technology leaders and district administrators have shared their views and ideas through Speak Up. Data findings are shared each year with federal, state and local policymakers to inform education programs, policies and funding.

Surveys are open for input October 6th – December 19th, 2014 at: www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2014.

Register as your school or district’s primary contact for Speak Up

As the primary contact for your district, school or organization you will be in charge of the promotion and encouragement of the survey at your selected organizational level. In return, you will receive free, online access to your aggregated results with state and national comparisons in February 2015.

Benefits of being the primary contact                                                         

  • Gain administrative access by assigning your school or district an administrative login password, which allows you to update school or district contact information, assign individual student survey passwords to schools, and more.
  • View your school/district survey counts at any time, and view your data once it becomes available (administrative password is required to view data results).
  • Ensure confidentiality of your surveys with your students by assigning a survey “secret password” for students to use to take the survey.
  • Keep up to date on important updates during the survey process, such as participation numbers.

Click here to sign up as your school or district’s primary contact! All we need are your name, email address, an administrative organization login password (to view weekly survey counts and other important updates during the survey period), and a student survey password (secret word students will use to access the survey).

If you have any additional questions regarding speak up registration, please contact the Speak Team at speakup@tomorrow.org.
