Project Tomorrow, the global nonprofit education research organization, recognized worldwide for supporting innovative schools in their use of digital tools within learning, is conducting the second year of a research project highlighting international school exemplars in the use of technology within education. Similar research has been conducted in the United States since 2003 and in selected countries including Mexico over the past few years. More than 5 million education stakeholders have participated in Project Tomorrow’s Speak Up Research Initiative during the past 14 years, and the project is globally recognized as the definitive source for a timely and authentic representation of digital learning in schools today.
Project Tomorrow and BrainPOP, in collaboration with ISTE, created the Speak Up Research Project for International Schools in 2016. Speak Up International facilitates the collection and reporting of authentic student and educator views on digital learning, STEM/STEAM education and new learning environments through online surveys. Participation is easy and open to all schools where instruction is primarily in English.
Schools register with Project Tomorrow and then provide their students and faculty with a special URL to an age-appropriate online survey. Survey completion takes less than 20 minutes. Participating schools receive a free report with data from your stakeholders and colleagues on the role of technology within teaching and learning. Additionally, each participating school gains access to a special report on digital learning in international schools. There is no fee to participate in the research project or to get the reports, nor any limitations on the number of participants per school. All collected data is 100% confidential.
