Introduction & Survey Information

 
6% of survey complete.
The Learning Counsel is surveying U.S. K-12 and equivalent international primary educators about digital curriculum strategies and selecting the Top 10 to join us at our national Gathering event for an Awards Ceremony to honor their achievements.

Helps You

This Survey is also called an Assessment Tool because schools taking it year over year find that just the process of answering all the questions helps them to talk more amongst themselves and discover a strategy that levels up to meet more of a national average, or exceed it. When your school or district takes this Survey it helps you.

Could Save the World

The results from over 500 schools/districts responding helps set the bar for the nation’s overall tone and therefore what is delivered by the Learning Counsel for learning aids. After the first year we delivered a “Digital Curriculum Model Architecture” Special Report, downloaded by people all over the world. Last year we delivered the “71 Characteristics of Digital Curriculum” to help the world better understand what is going on inside learning software. In 2016 we’ll be one-upping ourselves even more, and your participation this year will set the bar for 2017. Together, we’re saving the world with better and better education delivered to millions of students.


Invited participants include: Senior education leaders, especially curriculum and technology executives or teams.
