SIIA survey finds technology progress in U.S. schools, universities
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today released the full report from 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. SIIA presented the results during the Campus Technology Conference in Boston. 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. The preliminary findings were presented at the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference in June.
- More than 75 percent of both K-12 and postsecondary participants rate the importance of technology integration and its ideal level very highly.
- This year the postsecondary response to the survey increased greatly. Twenty nine percent of postsecondary respondents were from two-year institutions and 71 percent were from four-year institutions.
- Overall, 24 percent of all participants reported their institution at high levels of technology integration.
