Project Tomorrow (which does really good work) is creating a new survey of teachers, to get the lay of the land in teacher prep. This one is the first one, I believe, in which they’re including aspiring teachers. Here is the blurb — if you’re seeking your credentials, consider contributing your voice to the survey! Due February 19th.
Wanted: Aspiring Teachers to join the National Dialogue about Teacher Education!
Project Tomorrow is seeking Aspiring Teachers who are currently pursuing a degree or credential to participate in its nationally recognized Speak Up project. The Speak Up for Aspiring Teacher survey is the newest in Project Tomorrow’s suite of Speak Up surveys and provides aspiring teachers with the opportunity to contribute to the national dialogue about teacher preparation. This online survey asks participants questions about how they use technology in and out of the classroom for personal and academic reasons, how they are learning to use technology to facilitate learning or for professional tasks, and their aspirations for your future classrooms.
The national findings will be released during a Congressional Briefing in May 2010 and used to inform national, state, and local policymakers about key issues related to teacher preparation and training. Your voice matters! The survey responses are 100% anonymous, so let us know what’s important to you and your future teaching career.
It’s easy to share your ideas – all you have to do is take the survey on our website!
For additional information, please contact June Pai at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949/609-4660 Ext. 12 or visit Project Tomorrow’s website.
Remember, the survey closes on February 19th, 2010!
