Our school will be partnering with BrightBytes, an educational research and analytics organization, so that we can learn more about our school’s technology use for student learning. Our goal is to gather metrics on technology access and skills, and on our school’s technology environment, in order to understand the connection between technology use and student achievement. This will be done through a comprehensive framework called CASE that looks at the Classroom factors, Access to technology, teacher and student Skills and Environmental factors.
To gain these insights, we must provide BrightBytes with a complete picture of technology use at school and at home. We will be asking students, teachers, and parents to participate in the project and to provide input.
Your participation is important to us and will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of our school’s technology use. All links for this survey can be found on the Malvern LC home page. Please help us by:
1. Taking the Teacher & Staff survey: http://www.bbyt.es/Q63DT
2. Arrange a time for all students Grades 3-5 to come to the library and take the student survey. This CAN also be taken on any computer or device.
3. Encouraging parents to take the survey. We will have all computers set up for this during Open House. It is on the homepage, it is on FB, PLEASE share it with all parents and encourage participation.
