Survey: School and University Progress in Technology and E-learning Encouraging

The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) released the preliminary results of the 2012 Vision K-20 Survey, its fifth annual national survey to measure U.S. educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward building a framework that embraces technology and e-learning.

The comprehensive report surveyed more than 1,600 educators and education administrators and suggests that K-20 institutions are maintaining current levels of technology growth despite difficult budget conditions.

This year the report included new questions asking educators to assess their ideal level for each of the Vision K-20 benchmarks. The findings show that of those surveyed, their ideal levels are much higher than the current implementation. Also, overall postsecondary institutions were further along in all technology goals and ratings than K-12 institutions, the survey said.

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 access, differentiated learning, assessment tools and enterprise support.

The final 2012 report will be available in mid July. The 2011 final report is available online.
