In an effort to improve broadband access, adoption, and use, our community is participating in Connected Nation’s Connected Community program. This project will assess the current status of technology access, adoption, and use in our area so we can develop a Technology Action Plan to improve the quality of life and economic potential in our community.
K-12 institutions are the cornerstone of a community’s educational system. K-12 education provides students with the knowledge and opportunity to become productive members of the next generation workforce. Schools, along with libraries, have traditionally been early adopters of new technologies, not only as the subject of education, but also as the tools. For this analysis, the Connected assessment is focused on the way in which internet-enabled devices and applications are tools for enhancing the learning environment and providing students with opportunities beyond the classroom. Additionally, the assessment examines the use of technology that allows schools to more effectively communicate with parents, students, and the community at large.
This survey is designed to collect data on how local K-12 schools are using broadband and related technologies. Therefore, your responses are key in accurately representing your sector. Survey respondents should have a working knowledge of the school’s technology use.
Please submit one survey per school. We estimate that this survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
