A Global Survey of Schools and Students

Every spring MLTI (Maine Learning Technology Initiative) hosts a student/ teacher tech conference where teachers and students present together. It is a great time of learning and sharing. I presented last year, but am unable to attend this year.

This year Sarah Sutter, Alice Barr, Cheryl Oakes, Kern Kelley, and Jim Moulton are hoping to get the 800 student participants online and using Google as a data tool. The goal is to have all of the students looking at and utilizing the data from this global survey about the length of school days and access to public education around the world. If you have a couple of minutes, can you and your students please complete the brief survey? I know the students and teachers in attendance will appreciate it.
