Speak Up Research Project

From the Michigan Department of Education -

Each fall, Project Tomorrow, an internationally recognized education nonprofit organization, facilitates the Speak Up Research Project – and we would like to invite you to learn more about how your school and district can participate this year.  Speak Up 2015 is the best way for education leaders to learn about the views and ideas of K-12 students, parents and teachers regarding digital learning, workplace skill development, STEM education and professional development.  It is easy to participate in Speak Up – there are no fees or costs – everything is 100% free. 

Last year over 521,000 K-12 students, parents and educators completed a Speak Up survey.  And 8,200 schools and 2,600 districts received free reports with their local data plus national findings for comparatives. Why use instructional funds for data collection when Speak Up is already available to every K-12 school and district?  Plus, Speak Up provides a direct pipeline for the voices of your stakeholders to impact federal and state policies, programs and funding every year. 

Want to learn more about Speak Up 2015?  Join us on Wednesday, October 7 for a quick 30 minute introduction to Speak Up hosted by the CEO of Project Tomorrow, Julie Evans.

Log on to the webinar at 11 a.m. on October 7 here:  https://us.bbcollab.com/collab/ui/session/guest/EA0F533E6F22A003C3395B00673D544F

In the Getting Started live webinar, Julie will address these key questions for you:
  • What is Speak Up?  What types of questions are asked on the online surveys and what types of schools or districts participate in Speak Up?
  • Why should my school or district participate in Speak Up?  What will be the benefits?  How could I use the Speak Up data to inform our local plans? 
  • See what is trending: Find out how MI schools are advancing in digital learning
