Data is the foundation of education today. It is how we justify our jobs, how we rate our schools, and most importantly how we drive our instruction in the classroom. Unfortunately when it comes to professional development opportunities for teachers, data is the last thing that is used in their creation.
In CEP812 this week, our job was to create a survey to collect data from our community of practice about how they are using technologies in their practice, how they would like to improve their tech integration practices and what type of professional development would be most useful to accomplish their goals. The data analysis from my survey can be found here.
In addition, we needed to summarize our data in a graphic format. Mine can be accessed by clicking here or on the image on the right.
Comments on my data and conclusions are welcome below.
