Sponsored by the organization’s Education Division, the Vision K-20 Survey gives educators and educational institutions the opportunity to evaluate their current technology use in a short, online survey. A new addition to the survey asks respondents to identify what they judge to be the “ideal” scenario for technology use. Survey takers can return to the survey periodically to evaluate their progress toward the Vision for K-20 education.
