Be a part of the broader technology conversation!
FSD145 is participating in the “Speak Up” national research project. Speak Up is the first survey designed to help parents share technology ideas directly with schools and national policymakers. By participating in Speak Up, families are sharing their views with a wide audience of local, state, and national policy makers as well as the business and educational communities.
The online survey is open to students, educators and parents; it’s quick and easy to get involved. To take the survey visit: http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2013/
and click the blue “Parents enter here” button. Encourage your children to take the student survey as well (green “Students enter here” button). Take a few minutes and contribute to the national dialogue about science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st century workforce.
