Sneak peek of our first Congressional Briefing

Our first Congressional Briefing is only 6 days away! Please join us on Thursday April 30, 2015 in Washington D.C. as we release the Speak Up 2014 student findings during our first Congressional Briefing. In the meantime, we've included a few data points from the national report - keep reading to learn more, and why you should attend the briefing in person or via video live stream:
  • 75% of students (grades 6-12) say that every student should have a mobile device  to use in school for learning; 84% of district administrators agree! 
    • Come and find out what how students in 1:1 classrooms are really using laptops, tablets and Chromebooks for learning – and what policies are needed to support mobile learning 
  • Two-thirds of students (67%) say that using technology in school increases their engagement in learning 
    • Learn why students say they are more engaged in blended, flipped or virtual classrooms than in their traditional (non-digital) learning environments 
  • 40% of students say that they are regularly going online to find YouTube videos to help with homework outside of school 
    • Our panel of students will talk about the power of self-directed learning such as this – and give examples of how they want to do more of this type of learning in school
