IDC New Zealand’s Digital Education Survey
International Data Corporation (IDC), in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, is running an online survey on the use of digital devices and technology in primary and secondary schools. This survey is extended until Friday 16 March 2018.
The survey is voluntary and takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
Information collected will be used to get insights into how primary and secondary schools across New Zealand are adopting and using technology, including a deeper look into schools where students bring their own device (BYOD). IDC will ensure individual responses are kept confidential and the results anonymous, by handling all queries through the New Zealand research team.
Schools that have not yet started or completed the survey will receive an email invitation from IDC on Monday 12 March, which will be sent through the email addresses listed in Educations Counts.
The principal may choose to complete the survey or nominate a person who will do it on the school’s behalf (eg, school board chair, deputy principal, IT leader or technology teacher). If you are not a principal but you are interested in taking part, please talk to your principal. We would like to encourage as much participation as possible from those with an interest in digital education, so we can gain a view from different perspectives.
A summary of the survey data, and how your school compares with others, will be distributed to principals of participating schools by the end of May.
This is a great opportunity to help inform work in this area and our ongoing support for schools.
For questions, please contact Louise Francis, Research Director from IDC New Zealand firstname.lastname@example.org.
