The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) recently released the 2014 Vision K-20 Survey Report, its annual national survey measuring U.S. educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward building a framework that embraces technology and e-learning.

■ Respondents expect an increase in the use of BYOD technology.
■ Both the current and ideal level of technology integration has shown an increase for K-12 and postsecondary institutions, compared to results from 2013.

■ Educators recognize that there is a large gap between current and ideal levels of implementation.
■ Only 40% of K-12 education institutions feel prepared for upcoming online assessments.
