Technology Survey

Sample Survey

Hello Campbell Staff:

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to help me complete this technology survey. I was challenged to get a 100% response from the staff at my building - thank YOU for helping me reach my goal!

This survey will address three areas: (1) personal technology skills, (2) technology usage, and (3) technology integration.

Although I have created this as a requirement for a course I am taking, I hope that I can share and use the results in our building. My goal is to discover areas in which our staff desires technology training or professional development, identify issues inhibiting technology integration, and generate ideas for how the technology committee can provide technology assistance to staff.

The survey is anonymous - answer freely and honestly. Again, thank you! I am very lucky to work with such an awesome group of people!
