Technology Survey-Teachers

    Directions

    This survey is about technology use at your school. You will be asked about your own technology use, the availability of technology at your school, and school/district policies or resources related to technology. In all questions that follow, “technology” refers to computers (including PDA’s or “Palm Pilots”) or equipment that is used with computers (e.g. scanners, printers, digital video recorders, etc.). Do not consider overhead projects, traditional (i.e. analog) VCRs, or tape recorders when answering these questions. Most schools across the nation are not yet at the point where budgets, funding requirements, technology resources, etc. allow teachers, students, and administrators to use technology to its full potential. This survey will help identify specific areas of need and will help track changes in these issues over time. For the survey to be most useful, it is important that you respond as honestly as you can. *Denotes required question.

    IMPORTANT: The following question asks about technology-related policies, training, and incentives in your school or district. Teachers sometimes have difficulty responding candidly if they feel that they are being “disloyal” to their school. However, it is understood that some of the issues addressed in the questions are limited by budgets, funding requirements, or state/federal policies, and may not be in control of school leadership. Please respond to each item as honestly as you can.

    Innovative, technology-supported teaching practices are rewarded (e.g., through public recognition, software or equipment for professional use, stipends for professional development)
    Research and best-practice are viewed by teachers and administrators as valuable and necessary for making decisions about technology use.
    Teachers are excited about learning new ways of using technology to improve student learning in their content areas or grade levels.
    Teachers are not afraid to learn about new technologies and use them with their class(es).
    School leadership is willing to support – through funding or manpower – teachers’ efforts at innovation and technology integration.
