Nation’s Largest School & District Survey on Digital Transition

2020 Survey2019 Survey

The Learning Counsel Annual Digital Transition Survey helps inform the nation as to the nature of school and district transitioning with digital. Many education leaders claim they “learn while they take the survey” because the questions provoke internal inquiry as to practice and structure.

Each year the Learning Counsel analyzes 1,000 or more completed surveys and selects top schools and districts that have indicated new innovations for granting rankings in the EduJedi Levels.

We spend many hours reviewing each applicant’s websites and activities posted online, interacting with some schools and districts to get completed data for final profiles.

During the Learning Counsel’s annual Gathering event, we announce winners of EduJedi levels and invite many of them to speak and join panels to discuss their innovations.

The levels awarded are as follows:
