2012 Survey Reflects Desire for Growth in Vision K-20 Goals

Washington, D.C. (June 26, 2012) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today released the preliminary results of the 2012 Vision K-20 Survey, its fifth annual national survey to measure U.S. educational institutions’ self-reported progress toward building a framework that embraces technology and e-learning. The comprehensive report surveyed over 1,600 educators and education administrators, and suggests that K-20 institutions are maintaining current levels of technology growth despite difficult budget conditions.

Overall Results

  • A record number of respondents, over 1600, replied to this year’s survey. This is more than triple the number from last year.
  • This year the report included new questions asking educators to assess their ideal level for each of the Vision K-20 benchmarks. The findings show that of those surveyed, their ideal levels are much higher than the current implementation.
  • Overall postsecondary institutions were further along in all technology goals and ratings than K-12 institutions.

The 2012 Vision K-20 Survey was developed to provide benchmarks against which educators and administrators can measure their institutional progress in using technology to provide 21st century tools, anytime/anywhere access, differentiated learning, assessment tools, and enterprise support.

As the voice of the educational technology industry, SIIA developed a vision for K-20 education – one that ensures that all students have access to a technology-enabled teaching and learning environment capable of preparing them to compete globally and lead the world in innovation. A successful pilot survey was initiated in 2008, with follow-up surveys conducted in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 to support the initiative.

The Vision K-20 Survey request was distributed to educators and administrators with the help of many partner organizations, including: Tech & Learning, Campus Technology, eCampus News, eSchool News, University Business, Education Week, The Big Deal Book, CoSN, Curriki, edWeb, Education Talk Radio, iNACOL, EDUCAUSE, The League for Innovation, Today’s Catholic Teacher Magazine, Educause, SmartBrief Education, Naviance, APU, C. Blohm & Associates, Adobe, and Measured Progress. SIIA also recognizes the lead partner, MMS Education, for their work on the Vision K-20 Survey analysis and upcoming final report.

The final 2012 report will be available in mid July. The 2011 final report is available http://www.siia.net/visionk20/pages/progress.html
