SIIA Releases Preliminary Vision K-20 Survey Results
K-12 institutions are maintaining current levels of technology growth despite difficult budget conditions, according to a Software & Information Industry Association report announced today at ISTE 2012 in San Diego. SIIA has released the preliminary results of the 2012 Vision K-20 Survey, its fifth annual national survey to measure US educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward building a framework that embraces technology and e-learning. The report surveyed more than 1,600 educators and education administrators, more than triple the number of respondents from last year.
This year, the report included new questions asking educators to assess their ideal level for each of the Vision K-20 benchmarks. Overall, respondents revealed that their ideals are much higher than their current implementations. Survey results also suggested that postsecondary institutions are further along in all technology goals and ratings than K-12 institutions.
The 2012 Vision K-20 Survey was developed to provide benchmarks against which educators and administrators can measure their institutional progress in using technology to provide 21st century tools, anytime/anywhere access, differentiated learning, assessment tools, and enterprise support. The final 2012 report will be available in mid July. The 2011 report is available at the SIIA website.
