The Learning Counsel’s premier annual U.S. K-12 Survey collects data to rate schools and mark national trends in how digital transitions are happening, particularly from the view of software sophistication, devices and network infrastructure. It is also a school “Self-Assessment” Tool because schools find that just the process of answering all the questions helps them to talk more amongst themselves and work out strategies to meet or exceed efforts in the surveyed areas nationally.

Our initial surveys, and our city-by-city tour of Digital Curriculum Strategy Discussions, have proved to us that many districts and schools do not have comprehensive strategies as they move to Digital Curriculum. They are using all types of random hardware products, subscription sites, apps, digital content and systems.
On top of this confusion of available devices and software, there is no immediate and codified solution for how these digital “things” are to be vetted, purchased or used all together in a cohesive over-arching solution. These are trying times in the transition to digital. Teachers are literally overwhelmed at a time when standards and testing are also changing. It goes without saying this is creating an enormous burden for schools.
This Survey will cause you to take inventory and look at what you are doing from a top-down pedagogical view. Perhaps you are over-duplicating digital materials with paper, or have no coverage at all in key subject areas. Inspecting your policies, methods of purchase and use will be a healthy exercise that can greatly benefit your district’s transition to digital curriculum.
