Speak Up 2013 congressional briefing wrap up

The New Digital Learning Playbook: Understanding the Spectrum of Students’ Activities and Aspirations is the first in a two part series to document the key national findings from Speak Up 2013. For the past eleven years, Project Tomorrow’s annual Speak Up National Research Project has provided schools and districts nationwide and throughout the globe with new insights into how today’s students want to leverage digital tools for learning based upon the authentic, unfiltered ideas of students themselves.



We apologize to everyone who tried to watch the live stream on Tuesday - we unfortunately had Internet connectivity problems without our own building, which led to problems with the live stream. If you were unable to attend the congressional briefing or watch the live stream, you can view the full event on our website or on the video above. 
If you are interested in viewing the full report you can download it from Project Tomorrow's website here.

Furthermore, in accordance with yesterday's congressional briefing and release of the report, the findings have been featured across the Internet - notably on T.H.E. Journal, Mind/Shift, and Education Week. Check out the articles below!
