The State of Tech - Pre-episode Survey - BYOT
This "State of Tech" survey is designed to collect information about schools in (and around) Ohio that are using or planning to implement a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) program. The data will be collected, summarized, and shared through the State of Tech podcast and website. The intention is to share best practices, lessons learned, and helpful resources from schools who have experience with this topic.

If you have any experience with BYOT in a school setting, we encourage you to complete this survey. ALL QUESTIONS ARE OPTIONAL, so do not feel obligated to answer everything, although your feedback through this survey is crucial to the value of this podcast and is greatly appreciated.
